Religious Life

Religious Life is not categorised as a sacrament in the same way as Marriage or Holy Orders. It does however constitute a calling from God and is a way of life that has enriched and blessed the Church and the world for 2000 years.

Those in Religious Life take vows of poverty, chastity and obedience and most profess to live a communal life. Religious sisters, nuns, brothers and priests have impacted the world in most extraordinary ways and left an indelible mark.
