2018 NRVC Summer Institute

2018 NRVC Summer Institute

July 10-21, 2018

 

Our annual Summer Institute will offer five workshops at the downtown campus of DePaul University, July 10-21, 2018. Choose to attend one or several workshops. Located in the popular Chicago Loop at 1 East Jackson Boulevard, DePaul University is easily accessible from both Midway and O’Hare airports by shuttle, taxi, and Chicago mass transit. For more information about the venue, visit their website at www.depaul.edu/about/campuses/Pages/loop.aspx 

This year we are offering two workshops simultaneously the week of July 16-21. You will have the opportunity to network with more NRVC members at breaks and lunch, which we hope will magnify your experience and have a greater impact in your ministry.

Please register for all workshops through our online registration form. Simply click the registration link that appears in each workshop description to register for that event. Registration available in early February.

Registration fees

Workshops are open to NRVC members at a discounted rate and for non-members at an affordable price. Since 2014, all NRVC workshops are consistently priced at $150 per day per NRVC member, regardless of the topic or speaker. Non-members pay $225 per person per day for each workshop. Not an NRVC member? Sign up now to receive the great Member Rate on workshops. 

Late registration

Registrations for workshops received after June 25 will incur a $100 late fee per workshop.

Accommodations

For the convenience of participants, affordable housing is contracted through University Center, which is just two blocks from DePaul University and close to restaurants, museums, and Lake Michigan. The University Center offers private bedrooms in a two-person suite connected to a shared bathroom with another NRVC workshop participant. A breakfast buffet, linen service, and fitness center is included. Limited rooms are available; make your overnight accommodations when you register for your workshop. Please do not call the University Center for reservations. Overnight accommodations are $115 per night for anyone in need of housing regardless of membership status. 

Please note that these simple accommodations are designed for university students and short stays at an affordable rate. If you would prefer more amenities, make your reservation at local hotels. There are dozens of hotels within walking distance of DePaul University's Loop campus, including Travelodge, Congress Plaza, Harrison Hotel, Hilton Chicago, and Palmer House. 

I love to be in downtown Chicago! Great places to visit, walk and eat. The train lines are close by for commuters and the public transportation is great. The availability of daily Mass is a great start to begin the day and I loved the free evenings!

—Sister Jean Marie Fernandez, R.G.S.​

Resident

If you need overnight accommodations at the University Center, register as a resident. Reservations are contracted for arrivals after 3:00 p.m. the day before the workshop begins and check-out is at 9:00 a.m. the day after the workshop ends. This means you are responsible for the full payment of the room reservation, regardless of your arrival and departure date.  Unfortunately, room reservations cannot be made for earlier arrivals or later departures. The Center has a locked storage unit to hold luggage until you are ready to leave on the day of your departure. If you are staying for the next workshop, you will not need to check out. 

Commuter

If you do not require overnight accommodations at the University Center, please register as a commuter.

Cancellations

Cancellations for workshops and/or accommodations must be received in writing before June 25 to receive a full refund, less a $100 processing fee per workshop. After the deadline, all fees are nonrefundable for the cancellation of workshops and/or accommodations. 

Mass

Mass for workshop participants will be offered each day (except Sunday) at 8 a.m. in the Lewis Center building located within the DePaul University Building at Jackson and Wabash. If you need to attend liturgy at another time, St. Peter’s in the Loop at  110 West Madison Street, Chicago, IL 60602-4196 offers liturgy at the following times during the week: 6:15 a.m., 7:15 a.m., 8:15 a.m., 11:40 a.m., 12:15 p.m., 1:15 p.m., and 5 p.m. 

Mass at Summer Institute

I appreciate the fine work NRVC continues to do to help vocation ministers and leadership to become more competent.

Sister Christine Garcia, S.S.N.D.
