Embracing Faith Through Community

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” -Psalm 51:10

On Sunday, February 7th, Sr. Kathleen McManus, OP, a Sister of Saint Dominic of Blauvelt, York, reflected on her vocation, ministry, and World Day of Consecrated Life, at the Mass in Celebration of Consecrated Life for Religious in Rockland County at St. Francis of Assisi in West Nyack.

World Day of Consecrated Life, which is celebrated on February 2nd, but observed in parishes on the following weekend, highlights how consecrated persons are gifts for the whole church. (1)

While live-streaming from Portland, Oregon, Sr. Kathleen reflected on this and how it related to her Dominican vocation.

“The charism of the Order of Preachers, on behalf of the world is my own charism. My religious vocation has enabled me to serve God’s people by becoming my truest self,” reflected Sr. Kathleen.
