Consecrated men and women from the Archdiocese of Hartford and Diocese of Norwich gathered Nov. 29 at Mount Sacred Heart in Hamden to mark the opening of the Year of Consecrated Life with a candlelight procession and evening of solemn vespers. Dinner followed.

The worldwide celebration, which officially began on the First Sunday of Advent, will conclude on the World Day of Consecrated Life on Feb. 2, 2016, the feast of the Presentation of the Lord.

A prayer marking the Year of Consecrated Life for the Archdiocese of Hartford was composed by the Benedictine Nuns at the Abbey of Regina Laudis in Bethlehem.
