2018 NFCRV applications open 

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. No grant request will be considered if the community does not have membership in NRVC or is currently receiving Misericorida Financial Assistance.

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 at nfcrv.org


New resources available

Two popular NRVC brochures have been updated: Ten Questions Parents Ask and Ten Questions People Ask. These resources are great give-aways at vocation fairs, parishes, and other events or 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 their help in editing: Brother Jonathan Beebe, C.S.C.; Sister Josita Colbert, S.N.D.deN.;  Sister Michael Francine Duncan, S.S.M.O.; Mr. Len Uhal; and Sister Mary Yun, O.P. Order now.
