The Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA), which is conducting research on families and vocations for NRVC, reports an excellent response rate from both religious institutes and dioceses to the “Study on the Role of Family in Nurturing Vocations to Religious Life and Priesthood." The  results will be released to the NRVC membership and the media in August.

NRVC will also promote the study results at the World Meeting of Families, which will take place in Philadelphia in conjunction with Pope Francis' visit to the United States September 22-27. If you plan to attend the meeting, be sure to stop by the NRVC booth.
