NRVC updates its Code of Ethics

NRVC updates its Code of Ethics

The NRVC has updated its Code of Ethics for Vocation Ministry and encourages all involved in this ministry to review it. Consider sharing these important guidelines with your leadership and membership. The code sets forth the principles, responsibilities, and expectations for vocation ministry, including responsibilities of leadership and membership, ethical vocation promotion with inquirers, accompaniment of discerners, and assessment of applicants for admission.

 

A warm thank you to all who served on the committee that recommended the updates recently approved by the NRVC board: Father Luke Ballman, Sister Deborah Borneman, SS.C.M., Sister Kathleen Branham, O.S.F., Father Raymond P. Carey, Ms. Colleen Crawford, Ms. Adriana Dominguez, J.D., Sister Marcia Hall, O.S.P., Sister Michelle Lesher, S.S.J., Brother Larry Schatz, F.S.C., Sister Cynthia Serjak, R.S.M., Sister Nicole Trahan, F.M.I., and Sister Cheryl Wint, O.S.F.
