With the slogan “Alzati, va’ e non temere” (Get up, go and don’t be afraid), the Calasanziane Sisters, founded by Blessed Mother Celestina Donati, are preparing to live an intense Vocational Year in all their Calasanziane presences. This vocation year will coincide with the period of preparation of the next General Chapter of the Congregation, to be held in July of 2018.

The Celestinian Vocational Year will begin on March 18, the day on which we commemorate Blessed Mother Celestina.

Mother General, Suor Anna Lucia D’Ospina, has called this vocation year with three broad objectives:

  • to grow in awareness and stewardship;
  • to transform our lifestyle;
  • to promote a way of communion.

The Order of the Pious Schools welcomes this news with deep joy and wants to live it like a new gift of the Calasanctian Jubilee Year. We join in the hope and the prayer of our Calasanziane sisters, imploring the Lord the gift of Celestinian vocation and working for that.
