New online resource helps both discerners and vocation promoters

A new, large-scale resource is now available online for people who want to connect with religious, know more about their lives, or promote their way of life—Bold and Faithful: Meet Today’s Religious. For the first time ever, users can click on a map and discover which religious are in a given area, their events, and how to connect.

The new site also offers video, podcasts, articles, and comprehensive resources for promoting religious life, such as curriculum, infographics, fact sheets, and webinars. It brings together previously disparate resources by offering materials from its sponsor, the National Religious Vocation Conference, and five key collaborators: A Nun’s Life Ministry, Global Sisters Report in the Classroom, Called and Consecrated, and VISION Vocation Network. The site was made possible by the support of the GHR Foundation.

HORIZON readers are encouraged to use and publicize the site at:
