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 2021 United States Convocation of Consecrated Virgins:

The 2021 United States Convocation of Consecrated Virgins took place July 2 through July 6 in Enders Island, Connecticut.  It was our first attempt at a hybrid convocation: 25 consecrated virgins and candidates participated in-person and another 40 registered to participate in live-streamed sessions.  The September 2021 issue of the Lamp will include a full report, with photos, and we plan to make the recordings available soon through the website store. 

We prayed together the Rosary with Ordo virginum meditations, from the Vatican.
