2016 Vocation ambassadors attract attention

Game launched; story published


Three vocation ambassadors launched an online game that connects college students and sisters face-to-face.

NRVC's Vocation Ambassadors Program garnered positive media coverage and saw the launch of an innovative game for connecting college students and sisters.

Global Sisters Report published a detailed feature about the program in its "Trends" section on August 16.

In August three newly trained vocation ambassadors with the Adorers of the Blood of Christ launched a game intended to get college students at Newman University in Wichita, Kansas interacting in person with sisters. The game, loosely modeled on Pokemon Go, is called "Collect the Deck." Players collect cards by attending events and visiting sisters and other notable personalities at the university. Each card profiles a sister or university person. Whoever collects the most of the 52 cards wins a $200 prize in February.
