Sister Patricia Crowley, OSB presented at the Chicago Archdiocesan Celebration of Consecrated Life Day on Saturday February 3, 2018 at Queen of All Saints Basilica. Sister Patricia began her talk with the question: "What does it mean for consecrated men and women to be a prophetic witness in Church and society? How do we respond to this call?” She offered a variety of sources and scripture as well as her own experiences in ministry to answer these questions. One quote that the group really responded to was from a CF - Weston hymn: “When God opens the eyes of our lives, and the ears of our years are unsealed, then, we will be a people fully awake, a people who may listen deeply”.
