Why come to Fall Institute?

There is a joyful spirit at NRVC that is palpable in its members. Dynamic vocation ministers ask the deeper question, “How can I fully engage in my NRVC membership?” The answer begins with networking with one another at region meetings and participating in NRVC workshops. Members who are fully engaged are motivated to keep updated in the trends, issues, best practices, and skills in vocation ministry. They are enthusiastic contributors to the field of vocation ministry as writers, presenters, videographers, and animators. Fully engaged members have the conviction that emerging adults are curious about religious life and desire vocation discernment. Come to learn new skills, to enhance your ministry, and to make lifelong education a priority. 

Our biennial Fall Institute will offer four workshops at the Marillac Center in Leavenworth, Kansas, October 13-25. Similar to the Summer Institute, it’s your choice as to how many workshops you want to attend. Marillac Center is a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth and is located on their Mother House grounds. It is accessible from the Kansas City Airport (MCI). Participants can use the Super Shuttle from the airport, or if you are driving, there is free parking available at the Marillac Center. For more information, visit their website at http://www.scls.org/Marillac-Center/Facilities-Services.aspx.

Overnight accommodations are also available at the Marillac Center. Enjoy the convenience of having spacious bedrooms with a private bath with shower. A complimentary breakfast and supper is offered for residents. Lunch is included for all workshop participants. Wireless internet access is available for all meeting rooms and guest rooms.

Limited rooms are available; make your overnight accommodations when you register for your workshop through nrvc.net. Please do not call the Marillac Center for reservations. Click here for Registration Reminders regarding commuter or resident status, late registration, or cancellation.
