Consecrated virgins of Michigan

Sunday, October 8th, 2006

         See, e.g., the somewhat luridly titled Woman joins small club of ‘consecrated virgins’: 43-year-old in New York turns down sex for Jesus in rare Catholic ceremony,

         “She stood at the altar in a white gown and veil, but she was there for no earthly man. Lori Rose Cannizzaro was dedicating her virginity to Jesus.

         Saturday’s rare Catholic ceremony, one her own pastor didn’t know existed, turned the 42-year-old into a “consecrated virgin.” Fewer than 200 women in the United States and 2,000 worldwide have declared their perpetual virginity this way, according to U.S. Association of Consecrated Virgins. …”

         Find that society at . They are, of course, headquartered in…..Lansing, Michigan. Where else could it be?

         Have a blessed Sunday!
