Amplify hope in religious life

Abundant Hope video series

New videos to be published soon

Spark a conversation about religious life using this new video series of newer entrants talking about their lived experiences of intergenerational and intercultural vowed communal life. 

These short two minute videos from a variety of sisters, brothers, and priests can be used in vocation promotion as a way to demonstrate the vitality of consecrated life among our members who entered religious life since 2002. They can also be used in community conversations with NRVC's Study and Reflection Guide to enhance vocation ministry. 

All the videos can be accessed directly through the National Religious Vocation Conference YouTube Channel or through the links provided. Thank you to the following newer entrants for their time to prepare a script and to record a video in partnership with Franciscan Media through the generosity of the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation.

As the videos are released publicly, the link will be provided.
