Who is the NRVC?

By National Office


We are pleased to announce the publication of the Religious Life Today Storymap based on the NRVC's 2020 Study on Recent Vocations. The Religious Life Today Storymap brings the research to life and we hope to inspire broad engagement around the results of this Study.

Please be assured of the viability of religious life today.

As you scroll through the features of the storymap, we hope you will experience renewed hope in the future of religious life.

 

We are: 

  • the official religious vocation conference in the United States as recognized by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USSCB.)
     
  • the professional organization for religious vocation directors whose primary goal is to help women and men discern a religious vocation, assess candidates interested in becoming Catholic sisters, brothers and priests, and welcome new members to religious life.
     
  • 1000 members strong representing 300+ religious institutes and organizations in 23 countries.
     
  • providing those in vocation ministry the tools they need to effectively promote vocations,  invite others to consider religious life, and assist in the discernment process.
     
  • creating exceptional programming, training and resources for spiritual and personal growth which positively impact the future of religious life.
     
  • educating connecting and inspiring all those interested in the future of religious life, including thousands of young Catholics exploring religious vocations each year.
