Presenter

Reverend Raymond P. Carey, Ph.D. is a priest of the Archdiocese of Portland, OR. He has taught at both the secondary and university levels, and presently teaches at Mount Angel Seminary Graduate School of Theology in Saint Benedict, Oregon. Fr. Carey holds a doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Ottawa, Canada. He has presented workshops in North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. He is a recipient of the NRVC Harvest Award and a Lifetime NRVC member for his work in service of vocation ministry.

 

The material was extensive and presented well. Learning more about gender identity, sexual energy and intimacy skills was most helpful for me professionally and in living my own vocation well.

–Brother Pat Douglas, S.J.​

I am in leadership and because of the reports we receive when people are applying for vows, I was interested in the content of this program. There are three times that we can assess suitability (before entrance, temporary vows, final vows) and I wanted more content to be better able to make the assessment.

–Sister Marie Ursino, S.H.C.J., ministering in Rome, Italy

Pragmatic content effectively delivered. This workshop opened a new and valuable perspective for me. Now I understand why the vocation team sets up structures and interactions the way it does. I am grateful we now have a common language and goal.  

–Brother Nick Gonzalez, F.S.C.
