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 February issue of
is now available.
Care for the suffering
That, rejecting the culture of indifference, we may care for our neighbors who suffer, especially the sick and the poor.
Openness to mission
That Mary's intercession may help Christians in secularized cultures be ready to proclaim Jesus.
