The Rome Theresians was started in 1963 by Monsignor Victor F. Ciciarelli to pray for the vocations to the priesthood and religious life. This group, now moderated by sisters, consists of sisters and lay women. During the monthly meetings, vocation prayers are offered, as well as intercessory prayers to St. Therese. On the feast of St. Therese a special mass is celebrated in her honor. Meetings are held on the second Saturday of each month.
