Hilton grant recipients meet

NRVC takes part

Brother Paul Bednarczyk, C.S.C. takes part in a panel discussion of a study of public perceptions of Catholic sisters.

NRVC's Brother Paul Bednarczyk, C.S.C. and Sister Debbie Borneman, SS.C.M. participated in a November 4-7 gathering in Pasadena, California of the 32 organizations that have received monies from the Catholic Sisters' Initiative, part of the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation.

The Hilton Foundation sponsored the meeting, which allowed grantees to network, share what they've learned from their projects, and respond to a study the foundation conducted of public perceptions of Catholic sisters. Brother Paul was one of three panel respondents to the study.

In 2014 NRVC was the recipient of a $2.55 million grant for the establishment of the National Fund for Catholic Religious Vocations (NFCRV) and an additional $2 million grant for continued NRVC capacity building. In 2011 it received $50,000 to study the impact of educational debt and produce corresponding resources.
