Vocation Ambassadors Program

Vocation Ambassadors Program

New program underway

Members of the Vocation Ambassadors team talk to young adult focus group members during a kickoff meeting to begin designing the Ambassadors program.

Vocation directors, communicators, and a focus group of young adults convened by NRVC met in September in Chicago to begin designing a "Vocation Ambassadors" program.

The program is meant to help religious communities prepare and send forth young laypeople (ambassadors) to carry a vocation message to the public.

"The Vocation Ambassadors workshop will bring together vocation ministers, communicators, and young, lay Catholics to learn relevant, practical, and affordable marketing strategies that can be implemented immediately to promote vocations to religious life," says Deborah Borneman, SS.C.M. NRVC director of member relations and services.

The initiative is being funded by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation. Serving on the design team are: Sister Deborah Borneman, SS.C.M.; Ms. Miranda Caulkins; Ms. Debbi Della Porta; Sister June Fitzgerald, O.P.; Father Adam MacDonald, S.V.D.; Father Larry Rice, C.S.P.; and Sister Theresa Sullivan, D.C.

As details become available about the Vocation Ambassadors workshop—which will be offered only to NRVC members—more information will be published in this newsletter and on nrvc.net.
