NRVC conveys vocation message at NCYC

51 religious communities present

Sister Belinda Monahan, O.S.B., NRVC Board member, at the NCYC Inspiration Nook. She is next to one of a series of banners about vocation discernment that NRVC displayed.

NRVC members and staff helped deliver the message that religious life remains a lifegiving option to more than 20,000 Catholic teens and their chaperones who attended the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) November 21-23 in Indianapolis.

Nearly 80 NRVC members, representing 51 communities, participated in the event, primarily through their presence in Inspiration Nook, a vocation-themed space that allowed young people to converse informally with religious. 

In addition, NRVC members highlighted the vocation of brothers and helped lead a workshop. Brother Mark Motz, S.M. and Brother Luis Ramos, F.M.—both members of NRVC—led morning prayer for the full assembly on November 23. Former NRVC member John Mark Falkenhain, O.S.B. led the schola for the Liturgy of the Hours on the 23rd. And Gregory Darr, NRVC co-coordinator for the Upper Midwest member area, presented with Karen Estrada the NCYC workshop, "Hello, Goodbye: Lessons for Navigating Life's Transitions." 

Photos of NRVC's presence at NCYC are available on our Facebook page.
