World Day for Consecrated Life

In 1997, Pope Saint John Paul II instituted a day of prayer for women and men in consecrated life. This celebration is attached to the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord on February 2nd. This Feast is also known as Candlemas Day; the day on which candles are blessed symbolizing Christ who is the light of the world. So too, those in consecrated life are called to reflect the light of Jesus Christ to all peoples. The celebration of World Day for Consecrated Life is transferred to the following Sunday in order to highlight the gift of consecrated persons for the whole Church.

Day of Prayer

In response to the pro-choice movement, the United States bishops have decreed January 22 as a day of prayer in atonement for the scourge of abortion and petition for the sake of the unborn. Please consider attending daily Mass that day or adopt some spiritual exercise if Mass is not possible.

Adoration Cancelled 08/28

Construction on our new restroom facilities begins the week of August 26, 2019. Due to the need for workers to move in and around the Church as well as the noise that construction naturally brings, we at A.B.V.M. cannot guarantee the sacred and quiet environment essential for Eucharistic Adoration. As a result, we have cancelled adoration on August 28 and apologize for the inconvenience.
