World Day of Prayer for Consecrated Life

February 2 is the World Day of Prayer for Consecrated Life.​​ Did you know that there are 120 different religious orders represented in the Archdiocese of Toronto?​ Today we join in prayer to celebrate all consecrated men and women and pray for more vocations to the consecrated life.

Throughout the Year of Consecrated Life, we will feature a number of religious to shed light on their important ministries in the Archdiocese of Toronto.

Today we would like to share the story of Sr. Maria Louise Edwards, CSSF​. Sr. Maria Louise took her first vows with the Felician Sisters in August 2014. She now serves as the Mission Integration Coordinator at Holy Name of Mary College School in Mississauga.

Hailing from New Jersey​, Sr. Maria Louise was once a full-time actress and model in New York City. But in the midst of worldly success, she still felt something was missing in her life. The missing piece was Jesus. 

Check out the video below for her full story and to learn more about her important work in Catholic education in our archdiocese.

Thank you, Sister Maria Lou...

Thank you, Sister Maria Louise!  I was inspired by your passion for religious life and I want to say thank you for taking such a contagious spirit to the young people of Holy Name.  You are a great role model for them and I know that through you they will be inspired to be good and faithful young women and they will have some understanding of the Consecrated Life.
