About the NRVC Collaboration with NFCYM

About the NRVC Collaboration with NFCYM


NRVC has been a formal national collaborator with the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry (NFCYM) since 2005. This collaboration is because the NRVC values fostering a culture of vocations in a spirit of collaboration, joy, and hope to inspire and be inspired by the minds and hearts of the young Church. It is also one of the goals in the 2019-2023 NRVC Strategic Plan: Enhance collaborative efforts for engaging the culturally diverse young Church in discerning and impacting the future of religious life. 

Many NRVC members participate in the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) biennial conference. This conference is the single largest gathering of youth in the United States, with over 23,000 teens, youth ministers, and parental chaperones. The next NCYC will be held  November 18-20, 2021 in Indianapolis, IN.  More information is here. 

Since 2013, NRVC has organized vocation teams to promote vocations to religious life at NCYC.  Due to the global pandemic, in 2021, the NRVC will not be hosting the Nook, a gathering space for inquirers to meet vocation ministers. However, you can participate as an exhibitor at NCYC. There is also a need for volunteers in the thematic park, however this information is not yet available. Check the NFCYM website for updates.

In 2012, NRVC selected NFCYM as the recipient of the prestigious Harvest Award for its collaborative efforts to promote a culture of vocations among teens.
