This workshop was very clear. I enjoyed the new understanding of boundaries, the rights and responsibilities of vocation ministers and candidates and the role of agency and power. The opened of participants who were able to ask questions helped me to go deeper into the topic. I am grateful for what I learned during this workshop. 

–Sister Marie Kampororo, SMSM from France

The Code of Ethics is very useful for me in vocation and formation ministry. This workshop was relevant, interesting and appropriate to name the at-risk behaviors and healthy boundaries. 

–Monsignor Esau Joseph from Trinidad, West Indies

It was inspiring to house ethical issues with the strong underpinning of reverence and respect of persons. It was very helpful to review and concretize the meaning and implications of agency and fiduciary trust. The real life stories made it very practical, thank you for the matrix of shalom. 

–Sr. Brenda Lynn McHugh, D.S.M.P. from Lake Zurich, IL


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. Please read the terms and conditions of all NRVC programs and events.
