2017 NRVC Programs and Workshops

2017 NRVC Programs and Workshops

Registration is now open!

 

General Information

The Mission of the National Religious Vocation Conference (NRVC) reflects its commitment to provide membership with educational opportunities, resources, and other supportive services that strengthen and enhance the professional ministerial skills of those serving in vocation ministry. NRVC strongly suggests that vocation ministers participate in ongoing educational opportunities to attend to their own vocation, faith formation, and to further develop their professional competencies. It is essential for vocation ministers to keep up-to-date on trends, issues, skills, and best practices in the field of vocation ministry.  

This year, NRVC is offering eight workshops intended for vocation ministers, formation teams, communicators, religious leadership, and others entrusted with the assessment of discerners and candidates. Workshops are designed from the NRVC three-component curriculum for those who wish to deepen their understanding of the complex theological, spiritual, psycho-sexual, ethical, and diversity issues often present in contemporary vocation ministry. 

I have learned so much. I never realized all the implications of what it means to be a vocation minister. What an awesome responsibility! Thank you. You have helped me greatly.

—Sister Laura Urbano, P.B.V.M.

Financial assistance available

To assist NRVC members with their professional development, the Misericordia Scholarship Fund is available. Scholarship funds can be applied to NRVC workshops, however they do not cover the cost of transportation, accommodations, meals, or personal expenses. If you need financial assistance to attend an NRVC workshop, please debbiesscm@nrvc.net for an application.
 

The schedule was super! Time for breakfast, prayer, Mass in the morning without rush—as well as generous time for lunch and breaks.
