Looking for a 2018 NFCRV grant? Be sure you renew your NRVC membership.

Dear NRVC Members,
Just a reminder that the National Fund for Catholic Religious Vocations (NFCRV) will open its 2018 online process for submission of grant requests beginning on Jan. 3, 2018 and closing March 13, 2018. These 2018 grant requests--for the college debt accrued by a viable candidate that your community is unable to subsume--can only be made by active 2018 NRVC members. Please make sure your NRVC membership is current before submitting a grant request. No grant request will be considered if the community does not have membership in NRVC.

Please contact Marge Argyelan at 773-959-4034 if you have any questions about the status of your NRVC membership. Our NFCRV Board will approve 2018 grant requests at our May 2018 meeting and notify recipients in June 2018. All 2018 application guidelines are online (nfcrv.org) and the application process will be open from Jan. 3, 2018 through March 13, 2018.

Thank you for your consideration of this special request.

Gratefully yours in Christ,

Mark J. Teresi
NFCRV Director, mjteresi@nfcrv.org


New resources available

Two new color brochures have been updated to answer commonly asked questions about vocations to religious life. Ten Questions Parents Ask and Ten Questions People Ask have been designed as a four panel double gate brochure. These resources are great give-aways at vocation fairs, in parish bulletins, and other mega events. They can also be used in orientation programs for employees, volunteers, and board members who need accurate information about religious life. Thank you to the following NRVC members for your help in editing the questions: Brother Jonathan Beebe, CSC; Sister Maria Brizuela, OSF; Sister Josita Colbert, SNDdeN;  Sister Michael Francine Duncan, SSMO; Mr. Len Uhal; and Sister Mary Yun, OP. Click here to order.


Synod to be held in 2018

The next general assembly of Catholic bishops will take up the theme: “Youth, Faith and Vocational Discernment.” To prepare for this 15th Ordinary General Synod, Pope Francis has written a preparatory document  and a letter to young people.  There is also a special prayer written for young people.
