New resources for World Day for Consecrated Life

NRVC has produced two new resources for celebrating World Day for Consecrated Life, to take place February 2, with parishes celebrating it February 4-5.

NRVC members are encouraged to use the video "Why we love our vocation" in their ministry.

NRVC also has produced a new prayer card ideal for use in connection with World Day for Consecrated Life. It may be downloaded, or it purchased in packs of 100.

Go to U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and Serra International for further ideas from promoting consecrated life.

Do you know an outstanding vocation minister? Consider nominating that person to serve on the NRVC Board. Board members attend three meetings a year, each of which lasts four days. Self nominations are accepted, and all nominations are due by March 1. The board will select new members at its March meeting and hold an orientation for them in August. Forms for making a nomination are here. To learn more about board responsibilities and the growth and learning that can be gained through board service, contact any current board member.
