Lay people are invited to join in the Mass for the World Day of Prayer for Consecrated Life as a show of support for Religious.
Lay people are part of the Church, and the Religious would like to invite them to share the latter’s joy and give thanks to God as they celebrate their identity as Religious, says Franciscan Missionaries of Mary Sr Assunta Leong.
“The Eucharist is the highlight of the celebration,” said the nun who is on the organising team for the celebration.
Furthermore, the celebration can also serve to inspire those who are contemplating a vocation in Religious life, she said.
The Mass will be held at the Church of St Mary of the Angels on Feb 1 at 8 pm.
Before the Mass, the Religious would gather among themselves for an input and sharing session by the Singapore Pastoral Institute based on this year’s theme, Let Your Light Shine.
