Conrad N. Hilton Foundation grant to NRVC in 2020

The National Religious Vocation Conference (NRVC) is pleased to announce that a generous grant recently received from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation Catholic Sisters Initiative will support ongoing efforts toward the achievement of two major objectives from its 2019-2023 strategic plan.

The first objective is to create sustainable solutions to challenges in the organizational structure and financial model needed to build for the future of NRVC in its leadership, mission, and vision. The NRVC board and staff will commit to operational and strategic decision-making criteria to integrate the new team leadership model for its national board and staff with standards of accountability.

The second objective is to continue to offer lifelong formation and education for Catholic sisters that fosters spiritual renewal and leadership skill-building. As part of the grant, NRVC will be inviting 30 sisters who entered religious life after 2003 to participate in the NRVC biennial convocation in Spokane, Washington, October 30 - November 2, 2020. Additionally, NRVC will fund 12 brothers or priests who entered after 2003. Having newer religious at the convocation is expected to enhance the understanding and the ongoing formation of all participants at the conference. This invitation will include covering the costs for convocation registration, three hotel overnights, and up to $700 in travel expenses.

For more information and for applications to recommend a newer member, NRVC members may contact their local Member Area Coordinator. (Applications are due July 15.) Applicants will be notified by August 1, 2020 by the NRVC office with instructions on completing the convocation registration process.  

For more information about the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation grant, please email Sister Deborah Borneman, SS.C.M. at debbiesscm@nrvc.net.
