The public is also invited! As part of this celebration, the people of consecrated life will be invited in particular to renew their commitment.

The Church has been celebrating this day yearly on February 2 since 1997. John Paul II instituted it for three purposes:

  • "to thank [the Lord] for the great gift of consecrated life";
  • "to promote a knowledge of and esteem for the consecrated life by the entire People of God";
  • to invite consecrated persons to "celebrate together solemnly the marvels which the Lord has accomplished in them" (John Paul II: January 6, 1997 message).
