Religious Vocations

World Day for Consecrated Life will be celebrated in the Church on Wednesday, February 2, 2022 and in parishes over the weekend of February 5-6, 2022. Please pray for all those who have made commitments in the consecrated life, and be sure to thank them on their special day. May they continue to be inspired by Jesus Christ and respond generously to God's gift of their vocation.

The Archdiocese of Newark will honor women and men who are committed to consecrated or religious life during its 25th annual Consecrated Life Mass on Saturday, February 5, at 11 a.m. in Newark’s Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred HeartCardinal Joseph W. Tobin, C.Ss.R., Archbishop of Newark, who is a religious with the congregation known as the Redemptorists, will preside over the Mass.

All are welcome to attend, including priests and lay faithful eager to show gratitude for those in consecrated life. Attendees must enter through the Cathedral’s Ridge Street door and are strongly encouraged to wear face masks due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The Mass will also be livestreamed on the Archdiocese’s YouTube and Facebook pages for those who prefer to participate virtually. 

Congratulations to our Jubilarians! (Click here for the full list.)
