Ursulines in Rome for conference “Consecrated Life in Unity”

Over the past week the Vatican has hosted over 6,000 consecrated people from across the globe for a conference entitled “Consecrated Life in Unity” to mark the end of the Year of Consecrated Life.  This gathering organised by the Cardinal Aviz and Congregation in conjunction with UISG brought together members from all strands of Consecrated Life – Contemplatives, Apostolic, Order of Virgins, Secular Institutes and New Forms of Consecrated Life for six days of input, discussion, prayer, liturgy and reflection.  The Irish Ursulines were represented by Sr Marianne (Ballytivnan, Sligo), Sr Patricia (Cabinteely, Dublin) and Sr Karen (Blackrock, Cork).
