On Facebook “It’s Tuesday. Tell me something good"

To encourage one another, NRVC’s Facebook page will be inviting members and friends to “Tell me something good” each Tuesday beginning today, May 3. The idea is to share on the NRVC page a positive moment in ministry, young adult outreach, vocational invitation, or even your own personal life. Nothing is too small or too large to share. Photos are welcome but not required. Just post your positive moment under the “Tell me something good” photo. Our page is at facebook.com/NationalReligiousVocationConference.

Studies on ordination class and entrance class

The Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate recently released two studies that build on similar studies conducted annually: “Women and Men Entering Religious Life:  The Entrance Class of 2020” and “The Class of 2021: Survey of Ordinands to the Priesthood.” Discover the facts about the newest people to enter religious life and/or be ordained to the priesthood. Both studies (and others) are available in the “Studies” tab on nrvc.net. Photo: Daniel Hernandez, O.S.C. expects to be ordained in 2021.
