Mr. Jack Ridout, Marist Fathers and Brothers

I am NRVC


 

jack-ridout.jpgHow long have you been in vocation ministry?
First I was assistant director (2004), and then I became director in 2008.

Are you part of a vocation team or a one-person operation?
I'm a one-man show, with "other duties as assigned."

How has being a member of NRVC been helpful to you?
It has given me unique insight as to what the job is all about, what you have to look for and ask questions about. NRVC has given me the tools to do the best job I can.

What has been your best vocation effort?
The best effort is the personal one, matching up a person with the right answer, the best "next step” for that individual. It’s good to have as many people in the congregation as possible looking at and listening to prospective members—for it is always a community effort with any candidate and not just one man's job.
