A rare and ancient tradition will take place at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist March 24. In a public ceremony, Catherine Richie, a religion teacher at St. Vincent’s Academy (SVA) in Savannah, will be  consecrated as a virgin living in the world. 


In church history, prior to the establishment of religious monasteries and convents in the 4th century, women would consecrate their lives – serving God in totality with the Blessed Virgin Mary as their model.
