“I want to encourage you to encourage young people (to consider the consecrated life). For priests, brothers and sisters: make time for young people, because that is how we’re going to encourage them to follow us on this incredible journey.” Fr. Steve Dos Santos, C.PP.S., speaks at the dinner for the Year of Consecrated Life, at the Knights of St. John Hall in Maria Stein, Ohio. Many thanks to the St. Marys deanery, the Sisters of the Precious Blood and the Missionaries who helped organize this great event!
