July 20-22, 2020

By NRVC National Office


This workshop has reached its capacity of 50 participants. If you would like to be placed on a waiting list, please email debbiesscm@nrvc.net 

Vocation ministers need to understand psychological well-being and psychosexual development so that they may adequately assess a candidate’s ability to lead a passionate, healthy and integrated life. In this workshop we will explore: well-being, an integrated understanding of sexuality, the centrality of relationships and intimacy, the necessity of personal boundaries, the impact of one’s past, especially physical, emotional and sexual abuse on one’s ability to relate, emotional awareness and integration, living a healthy sexual and celibate life as well as the impact of social media on personal development.

This workshop is being presented by reknown speaker, Sr. Lynn Levo, CSJ, who has presented online workshops for religious sisters, brothers and priests around the world to keep participants engaged.

Please note this workshop begins at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, July 20 and ends at 4:00 p.m. on July 22. There are 2 twenty minute breaks and a 90 minute lunch to avoid screen fatigue.

This workshop gave me a greater understanding of the experiences I have had in ministry and how to work with/in specific areas of need of candidate assessment. Sr. Lynn was very clear and straightforward with sharing her wisdom with us.

–Michelle Horton

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.

–Br. Pat Douglas, S.J.​

I am a post-novitiate formator and work closely with the formators and vocation personnel on our team. This workshop will help us integrate the material throughout the formation process. Sr. Lynn is an expert on this topic as well as religious life. She is wise and knowledgeable, and very respectful, knowing the realities of humanity.

–Fr. Tom Carkhuff, O.S.C.​


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. NRVC recommends that vocation ministers participate in ongoing educational opportunities to attend to their own vocation, faith formation, and to further develop their professional competencies.
