Everyone—bishops, priests, religious and laity—is invited to participate in the IRL’s mission “to promote and support the consecrated life, particularly vowed religious life, as a gift to the entire Church and an evangelical witness to the world.” IRL members receive six copies of Religious Life magazine each year, notices of IRL national and regional meetings, information on vocation resources and programs, and sample IRL publications from time to time to help promote the mission. And you’ll be helping to support all the great IRL websites: Religiouslife.com, ReligiousBrotherhood.com, CloisteredLife.com and VocationBlog.com.
