NRVC at European vocation conference

NRVC at European vocation conference

Brother Paul (right) with Archbishop Jorge Carlos Patrón Wong, the new Secretary for Seminaries at the Congregation for Clergy at the Vatican.

Executive Director Brother Paul Bednarczyk, C.S.C. represented NRVC at the annual conference of the European Vocation Service (EVS), held July 3-6 in Warsaw, Poland. Gathering under the theme "Christ-centered Education in Service of Vocations Today," the approximately 50 participants represented 18 European countries. Also attending were representatives from the Vatican Congregation for Clergy and the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life.  

In his organizational report to the participants, Brother Paul shared the NRVC logo for the Year of Consecrated Life. Several representatives requested the use of this logo in their own countries. In  addition, he also shared the hymn commissioned by NRVC for this special year.

The EVS is the umbrella organization of vocation offices of national bishops' conferences throughout Europe. Because of NRVC's contact with EVS over the years, NRVC has established collaborative relationships with vocation offices in Ireland, England and Wales, and France.
