Focus groups give input to study of newer members

Participants appreciate opportunity for reflection

Sister Lisa Rose, O.S.B. (left) and Sister Belinda Monahan, O.S.B. hosted a focus group held in St. Joseph, Minnesota in August.

NRVC held several successful focus groups around the country in August to elicit the thoughts and  experiences of newer members of religious institutes. Their input will be used in the NRVC study on recent vocations, to be completed in 2020.  

NRVC board member Sister Belinda Monahan, O.S.B. noted that at a group she co-hosted in St. Joseph, Minnesota, "Two women drove nearly three hours (one way!) to attend, and I'm so grateful they were so eager to participate that they were willing to do that. As she left, one sister told me she was energized by the session. It gave her a chance to think with her peers about what the future of religious life might look like."
