I am NRVC

Sister Regina Hlavac, D.C.

Sister Regina Hlavac, D.C. is a vocation director for the Daughters of Charity and co-coordinator of the Mid-Atlantic member area of NRVC. 

How long have you been involved in vocation ministry? 

I am a “recycled” vocation director, so I have been involved in the ministry for about nine years total.

Tell us about your vocation team.

In my community, I am one of three vocation directors for the entire United States. I am responsible for approximately 14 states in the mid-Atlantic area and in states to the north and south, along with Montreal.

Has being a member of NRVC been helpful?

Absolutely! I really enjoy the people of NRVC. They are awesome! I also like the programs, the articles in the newsletter, the classes that are offered, the meetings, the convention and just the great fun we have when we are together. The support is wonderful, especially from Sister Debbie.

What ideas have you used lately that excite you? 

We use a lot of social media in our ministry to be in touch with our discerners. However, I am really partial to direct contact and interaction with the women. Face-to-face works the best for me. We also conduct Zoom discerner meetings once a month, focusing on a general topic decided ahead of time. It gives discerners and us a chance to share for the hour. Of course, the basic “Come and See” retreats and “Search and Serve” have been fun times as well.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself.

I  was the only “girl” baseball player who played on the “all boys” Little League baseball team when I was in elementary school. I love sports to this day.

My hobbies are playing the guitar and gardening; I am a “tree hugger.” I love our common home, Mother Earth, and will do much to help to protect her.

Please name one thing that inspires you as a sister.

I love when community members reach out to each other and discerners with compassion and respect. I also think having a sense of humor goes a long way.
