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 USACV-IRC is pleased to announce the 2022 Information Conference:

The USACV-IRC is pleased to announce the 2022 Information Conference (English).

It will be held in virtual format, July 29-31, 2022, from 1:00pm to 6:00pm EDT each day.

Registration is open!  The USACV-IRC is pleased to host the 2022 Information Conference on the Vocation of Consecrated Virginity in a virtual format once again.  Conference team members found this format was very beneficial to women interested in this vocation from all across the United States and other English-speaking countries, since there are no travel expenses involved.  The conference includes prayer together, personal testimonials from consecrated virgins, and times for questions and answers in addition to core presentations on the life of consecrated virginity lived in saeculo, that is, in the ordinary circumstances of life.  As hostess of this event, I encourage anyone with a serious interest in finding out more about the vocation of consecrated virginity, or who is pursuing the consecration as an applicant or candidate, to attend this conference.  Also invited are diocesan delegates for consecrated life or other diocesan personnel involved in the preparation of virgins for consecration, as well as consecrated virgins themselves.  - from Mary Kay Lacke, consecrated virgin of the Diocese of Steubenville.
