I am NRVC


How long have you been in vocation ministry?

Four years.

Are you part of a vocation team?

Yes, I am a member of the American Province Vocation Team. As the vocation director, I serve as the facilitator for the team, which includes Spanish speakers and a coordinator.

Has belonging to NRVC helped you in your ministry?

Absolutely! My membership in NRVC has provided invaluable resources and tools. I have felt the support and encouragement of staff and fellow vocation directors. This encouragement nurtures me and helps me to create a culture of vocations in my community.

What have been your best vocation efforts?

Two things come to mind:

1. Implementation of the NRVC program, Keys to the Future. (Purchase "Keys"  here, learn about it here.)

This program enabled us to be frank about where we are with vocations and created an enthusiasm to keep working to be more visible as women religious. Because of this program, we have now established a group of 22 sisters who connect bi-monthly to foster vocations wherever we are.

2. We offer a stress management program at Rosemont College during exam week: "Make Space, Take a Break."  This program has opened many relationships with students and the campus ministry staff.

What do you find most rewarding?

Building relationships with those interested in religious life and with my fellow vocation ministers.
