Vocation Ambassadors

From June 10 - 13, NRVC sponsored a workshop in Notre Dame, Indiana called "Share the Sacred," which kicked off an ongoing project of young adults serving as Vocation Ambassadors around the country. 

Twelve religious communities prepared a young adult to serve as a spokesperson for their community and for religious life in general. The communities attended in teams of three: young adult ambassador, communications professional, and vocation director. Further details about the premier of this program will appear in the July NRVC newsletter. (Photo: Young adults perform a skit during the workshop. Photo by Chris Irr.)

Did you Know?

Did you know that nearly 20% of parents of those who are recently ordained, professed or in formation, express worry that their son/daughter will be overworked, burnt out or stressed, mostly because of a dwindling number of priests/religious and little down time? Perhaps one way to change this misconception is to post more photos and news with members enjoying a wide variety of inter-generational recreational activities with community (Source 2015 NRVC/CARA Role of the Family in Nurturing Vocations).
