An Undivided Heart: A Year of Consecrated Life

The Diocese of Brooklyn, the Diocese of Rockville Centre, the Vincentian Family and St. John's University have collaborated in planning a series of Retreat Days during the “Year of Consecrated Life.”  These gatherings will take place on every second Saturday of each month from December 2014-Jauary 2016—thus, 14 sessions.  The venue for these Retreat Days will always be the beautiful St. Thomas More Church on the Queens campus of St. John’s.  We will begin at 2:00 p.m. with prayer and the conference, and end at 4:00 p.m. with the celebration of the Sunday Eucharist.  All consecrated persons are invited. Please contact your diocese for more information.
