Bring a guest for free to Convocation!

Bring a guest for free to Convocation!

Build support and enthusiasm for vocation ministry by bringing a guest to the NRVC virtual Convocation October 29-30. There is no extra cost for fully paid registrants to bring a leader or newer member of their community who entered after 2002. Your guest will hear from the many young religious who will be attending. He or she will talk and pray with vocation ministers from around the world. Your guest and you will reflect on the nature of hope, the path to reconciliation, and the gifts of Asian Americans in religious life. And more! Please ask someone from your religious institute who is not a novice, postulant, associate, or current NRVC member.  Learn more here.

We will email ballots to vote on NRVC constitution changes

We will email ballots to vote on NRVC constitution changes

On October 7, NRVC members  will be emailed an electronic ballot for voting on the proposed changes to the NRVC constitution. The changes—which were shaped with member feedback—are intended to bring our organization in line with current realities. NRVC sent members the proposed changes in September and is now asking them to kindly use the ballot emailed to them, even if abstaining. Results will be announced at the Convocation business meeting on October 31.


Annual Report has sustainability theme

Annual Report has sustainability theme

The 2019 Annual Report is now available for viewing online. With a theme of sustainability, the report reviews key accomplishments. In outward-focused ministry, the NRVC took part in World Youth Day, began a study of newer members, took part in and co-hosted webinars, continued its tradition of excellence in publishing and workshop offerings, and launched the blog "Catalyst." At the same time, the organization secured its future through the Team Leadership Model of staffing, board restructuring, and financial structure improvements. Learn more here.
