2016 Jubilee Celebration

Posted inOffice of Vicar for Religious

On Sunday, October 30, 2016, the Diocese of St. Petersburg will celebrate the Jubilees of nineteen religious.  Representing a total of 840 years of consecrated service to the Church and the people of God, the religious will renew their vows during the 11:30 AM liturgy at the Cathedral of St. Jude the Apostle, with Bishop Lynch presiding.  In addition to the Jubilarians, we will recognize three religious who have taken their final vows within the last year.  You are invited to witness this public celebration of the vowed life, and to join the reception at the parish hall, which will follow the liturgy.
