Do this for the sake of your ministry

Do this for the sake of your ministry

Here are three proven reasons you should invest in attending the Nov. 3-6 NRVC convocation in Spokane, Washington. Remember, the early-bird discount ends after October 7, so register now!

 

  1. To build relationships for collaboration. This ministry hinges on working well with other people who are part of the religious vocations world. Convocation provides superior face-to-face time to meet others, build trust, and nurture these important relationships.
     
  2. In-person education has advantages. Online learning has its place, but the virtual world cannot replicate all the advantages of in-person, interactive learning. Also, learning at the convocation is not limited to formal presentations.
     
  3. Creativity is unleashed. Studies show in-person exchanges heighten creative thinking. This moment in religious life requires every ounce of our creativity.

Misericordia funds are available if you need assistance with the cost of the convocation.

The front of the handout quotes NRVC’s revised Code of Ethics on the role of members in vocation ministry. The back lists ways members can promote religious life membership.
