CMSM Year for Consecrated Life 2015
The Church is blessed with remarkable variety among the consecrated men in the U.S. In fact, there is so much diversity in the different kinds of communities, ministries, and characteristics of male religious that learning more about consecrated life for men can be overwhelming. We invite you explore consecrated life in three ways: by learning more about consecrated men, discovering the different charisms in the Church, and by looking at some of the religious communities in the U.S.
Institute on Religious Life
The Institute on Religious Life (IRL) promotes and supports the growth, development, and renewal of the consecrated life – particularly vowed religious life – as a gift to the Church and an evangelical witness to the world.
This new website shows the marvelous light that radiates from the important vocation of the Religious Brother in the life and mission of the Church. By providing information and inspiration to viewers, we hope to encourage many young men to consider this most important vocation.
