Drop in Days

Drop in Days

For OP cohorts in 2020, 2021, and 2022

Together, over three years, 100 NRVC members shared the experience of participating in a virtual Orientation Program for New Vocation Directors (OP) in the midst of a global pandemic. It was a new learning environment for all of us navigating through Zoom. Then, they were commissioned as vocation directors to minister in new and unique ways because of COVID protocols. At the same time, over the past three years, almost 1,000 women and men entered religious life, and over 500 made perpetual profession. This points to the ongoing need to accompany inquirers, assess discerners, and animate your congregations to pray for, invite, and encourage all those discerning their vocation to respond to God’s endless call.

This fall, the NRVC is trying something new by inviting the '20, '21, and '22 cohorts to the OP Drop-in Days while a new group of vocation directors takes the entire 5-day workshop. Is there a topic(s) that you may want to revisit or learn more about? Would you like to hear updated information or network with other newer vocation directors? All workshops are from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm U.S. Central Daylight Time, come for the entire day or just the topic.

Rather than charging a set fee, it is up to you how much you want to donate towards your OP drop-in day (for reference, all NRVC workshops are $185 per day). The amount is up to you, we just ask that you drop in for just one day. We are going to evaluate this experience afterward to consider offering it again in the future.
