Welcome to the website of the United States
Association of Consecrated Virgins (USACV)
The Most Blessed Virgin Mary is the patroness of the USACV, and years ago consecrated virgins also affectionately chose Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha as a patroness. Thus it is with great joy that we celebrated her canonization on October 21, 2012 as the first native American Saint. Likewise, it was with great joy, that we announced the release of the first volume of a new series, An Introduction to the Vocation of Consecrated Virginity Lived in the World.
The December issue of
is now available.
Please join in prayer with consecrated virgins traveling to Rome January 28 to February 2, 2016 to participate in a Synopsium for the Ordo virginium, to close the Year of Consecrated Life. www.congregazionevitaconsacrata.va
