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 our primary patroness, and Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, Virgin, the first native American to be canonized, is also a patroness of the USACV.  We hope you will enjoy browsing the pages of this website to learn more about the ancient vocation of consecrated virginity, newly restored in the Church in 1970 for women living in the world.
The 2022 United States Convocation of Consecrated Virgins:

We are delighted to announce details about our 2022 Convocation, which will be held June 24-28th in La Crosse, Wisconsin.  All consecrated virgins, from any country, are invited to attend.  The invitation is also being extended to candidates for consecration who have attended a previous Information Conference.

Convocation attendees will stay at the Franciscan Spirituality Center in downtown La Crosse, with most of our daytime programming held at the nearby Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe.  This year's theme is "Communion in the Bride of Christ."
