Welcome to the website of the United States
Association of Consecrated Virgins (USACV)

A voluntary association of consecrated virgins living in the world.  The purpose of the USACV is to provide support to its members in the faithful living out of their vocation to consecrated virginity and "…to assist one another in service to the Church as befits their state" (Canon 604, Code of Canon Law).   The USACV website is designed both to serve our members and to provide information about the vocation of consecrated virginity lived in the world.

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.
