Year of Consecrated Life

During the "year" from November 29, 2014 through February 2, 2016, the  Church is celebrating a "Year of Consecrated Life," commemorating the various Orders and Congregations of Religious Men and Women serving our Church.  In our Diocesan Directory, we find 16 such groups serving in the Diocese of Rochester.  The link below lists them all--one for each of the 16 months spanned by this special "Year"-- as well as a different aspect of Consecrated Life for our focus each month.  Also given are related events that will take place and Spiritual and Temporal ways in which we may observe them. -2015 Schema

Laudato SI

In the six Sunday bulletins leading up to Labor Day, 2015, Father Schrader highlighted key points found in the six chapters of Pope Francis’ encyclical, Laudato Si (On Care for Our Common Home) of May 24, 2015 (Pentecost Sunday).  This 6-week series can be found in one collected article at the following link, which also contains the URL for obtaining the entire encyclical as well as questions to ponder regarding our own personal implementation of the encyclical.  Laudato Si
