Religious men and women were invited to light candles and join with lay people in a procession to start Mass, celebrated by Archbishop John Nienstedt, who also was joined by Bishop Lee Piché and other priests and deacons. During the Mass, religious were invited to renew their vows to consecrated life, and those celebrating religious jubilees (50, 60 and 70 years) were honored. (Dave Hrbacek / The Catholic Spirit)
