Study of new members progresses to focus groups

Participation is strong

NRVC's 2020 study on recent vocations to religious life has enjoyed strong participation and is now progressing to the next phase: holding focus groups in 16 areas of the country.

More than 750 newer religious expressed willingness to take part in focus groups. They will be held in the coming months in Minnesota, California, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland, Texas, and Missouri.

Meanwhile, participation in the study has been strong: 67 percent of major superiors have participated, and 57 percent of newer members have taken part.

With grant funding from the GHR Foundation, the study is being conducted for NRVC by the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate.
