Summer INstitute draws positive reactions

Over 200 people attended NRVC's online Summer INstitute, July 7-22, a large majority commending NRVC for the quality of the experience. Thirty-two new vocation directors were commissioned following the Orientation Program, and others explored ethics, psycho-sexual integration, generational, cultural, and psychological issues. In addition to praise for the presenters, participants appreciated the small group discussions and the chat room exchange of ideas. "This format proved to be energizing by being with so many wonderful people in vocation ministry," wrote one attendee.
