Consecrated Life

Religious Communities

The most familiar approach to the living of Consecrated Life within the Catholic Church is religious life.

In the Savannah diocese, religious priests, sisters and brothers are actively living Consecrated Life. They belong to religious communities within which they profess vows. The vows vary somewhat by community. Most belong to communities which actively serve the needs of the people of God.
