A MESSAGE FROM OUR OFFICERS:
Since May of 1972, the Avilas are a formally organized and authorized diocesan group of men and women dedicated to making weekly Holy Hours of Prayer for those who are called to serve the church in the priesthood and religious life. We pray for vocations to this holy life and for those studying and discerning God’s call. We have chosen St. Teresa of Avila as our patroness in this work of prayer. The motto for the Avilas are St. Teresa words, 'There is but one road that leads to God and that is prayer. If anyone shows you another, you are being deceived.'
We welcome you to this informative website and our hope is that you will join us in this spiritual work for vocations to the ordained and consecrated ways of life, and for those actively in these vocations, giving their YES to God in His calling for their life of sacrifice and service for us, the Family of God."
