About NRVC Collaboration with NFCYM

About NRVC Collaboration with NFCYM

NRVC has been a formal national collaborator with the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry (NFCYM) since 2005. This collaboration addressed the NRVC Goal #5: The National Religious Vocation Conference fosters dialogue on vocational issues with a variety of church organizations with special emphasis on those who serve young adults and parents. 

Numerous NRVC members participate in the National Conference on Catholic Youth Ministry (NCCYM) biennial conference for adults who minister with youth. The next NCCYM conference will be held December 1-3, 2016 in San Jose, CA. Information from the NCCYM 2015 conference is available here.

Many NRVC members participate in the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) biennial conference. This conference is the single largest gathering of youth in the United States, with over 23,000 teens, youth ministers, and parental chaperones. The next NCYC will be held  November 16-19, 2017 in Indianapolis, IN.  

In 2013 and 2015, NRVC organized vocation teams to promote vocations to religious life at NCYC.  In 2015 NRVC had a broader involvement at NCYC as exhibitors, vocation team members, story tellers, and by sharing the diverse spiritualities and charisms of religious life in the Chapel. NRVC members also served as mentors to the teen animators who lead the liturigical prayers in the arena. It's a great way to promote all of religious life!

In 2012, NRVC selected NFCYM as the recipient of the prestigious Harvest Award for its collaborative efforts to promote a culture of vocations among teens.
