A Divine Encounter
“Worldly life aims to do whatever we want; consecrated life chooses humble obedience as the greater freedom. And while worldly life soon leaves our hands and hearts empty, life in Jesus fills us with peace to the very end, as in the Gospel, where Simeon and Anna come happily to the sunset of their lives with the Lord in their arms and joy in their hearts.” ~ Pope Francis on Religious Life
The Marian Sisters of Santa Rosa were founded in 2012 at the invitation of Bishop Robert Vasa to serve the Diocese of Santa Rosa.
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. They offer links to congregations of men and women religious, discernment resources, and information concerning consecrated life.
