Day of Consecrated Life

Invitation to the 2015 Day of Consecrated Life
Tuesday, June 23 in Baar and Sachseln

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

You are cordially invited to participate in the traditional “Day of Consecrated Life” which will be located this time in the heart of the year of Consecrated Life and framed by the general meeting of VOS’USM.

Indeed, in the course of their meeting, Religious men and women invited Cardinal João Braz de Aviz, Prefect of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life, to deliver a message on the theme:

”Consecrated Life and Movements: complementarity
or competition between old and new charisms?”

Enriched by the confirmed presence of Cardinal Braz de Aviz in Baar, the Training and Meeting Center “Eckstein”, the day of Tuesday, June 23, 2015 will be open to all consecrated persons in Switzerland. It will begin at 10:30 am with the Cardinal speech. In the afternoon at 15:30, it will continue with an ecumenical celebration composed partly of testimonies, in the church of Sachseln.

Already we look forward to living together this Day.

President of VOS’USM
