Vocation ministry during these times

Vocation ministry during these times

NRVC accompanies you

Recent events have profoundly shaken our church. The leaders, staff, and members of NRVC are no different. We are much like you, still getting up each morning, praying to God for wisdom and grace, and doing our jobs with heart and soul even when it isn't easy.

NRVC has always been a place for vocation ministers to find knowledge, camaraderie, understanding, support, and top resources so that we welcome the most healthy, mature adults possible to our communities. We know well that our ministry is essential.

God's call has not stopped. People are seeking their path, and we continue to accompany them. Here are resources you may find helpful to deal with issues related to the sexual abuse crisis, which NRVC commented on here. Members may log into nrvc.net for full access to our resources.

 HORIZON library   Articles directly about sexual abuse, sexuality, psychological assessment, etc. The next edition will have additional relevant content.

 Vocation Director's Manual   Articles on all aspects of the ministry, including detailed material on sexuality, sexual misconduct, safe ministry protocols, etc.

"Why consider a church vocation in times like these?"   This VISION article by Brother Paul Bednarczyk, C.S.C. is from 2004 but it addresses many relevant concerns for today's discerners.

 Each other   Consider reaching out to other vocation directors. They understand the pressures and joys you feel. See what is happening and who is a part of your member area
