2017 Vocation Ambassadors Update

2017 Vocation Ambassadors Update

One of the many teams that took part in the 2016 Vocation Ambassador Program.

Eight communities and one college are sending teams of three to the 2017 Vocation Ambassador Program, to take place June 9-12 in South Bend, Indiana. This program, which launched last June, prepares young people to be ambassadors for all types of religious life vocations. 

Each team consists of three people: a religious institute's vocation director, a communicator, and a young adult ambassador. During the program, teams will create individual vocation communications plans that will aid the ambassadors in spreading the word about religious life.  

NRVC extends sincere thanks to the following people who will be presenters, as well as to the Hilton Foundation, which is underwriting the program.

  • Cheryl Aughton, communications director for the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities in Pittsburgh
  • Sister Deborah Marie Borneman, SS.C.M., NRVC director of member relations and services
  • Father Adam MacDonald, S.V.D., vocation director for the Society of the Divine Word
  • Sr. Marie Mackey, C.S.J., vocation director and congregational director of young adult ministry
  • Siobhán O'Neill Meluso, social media strategist with experience at VISION Vocation Guide and Divine Word Missionaries
  • Father Larry Rice, C.S.P., director of the University Catholic Center at the University of Texas and presenter on the topic of social media for the church
  • Sister Annette Schmeling, R.S.C.J., consultant, trainer, and communications professional who specializes in both contemplative dialog and social media
  • Carol Schuck Scheiber, publications editor for the National Religious Vocation Conference
  • Chris Swain, director of the Office of Lasallian Vocation Ministry for the De La Salle Christian Brothers
