Limerick City and County Council held a civic reception in honour of the women and men members of religious orders and congregations of Limerick. It was in recognition of the significant contribution of the Orders and Congregations to education, health care, and many other spiritual and social projects in Limerick. The fact that the civic reception is being held during the Year of Consecrated Life proclaimed by Pope Francis makes this occasion more gratifying. We congratulate our sister and brother members of religious orders and congregations on this occasion.
