Gatherings successful; NRVC encourages more

A report summarizing the impact of NRVC's series of four gatherings about Catholic sisters has been published and is available here

In 2015 NRVC sponsored "Today’s Catholic Sisters"—intended to increase awareness and understanding of sisters among laity, clergy, media, and other interested parties. In particular, the gatherings looked at why a young woman would consider joining consecrated life.

The participants’ positive response affirmed that the faithful witness and selfless service of religious sisters continues to inspire and have a positive impact on our church and world.

NRVC hopes these gatherings will spur other church constituencies (especially Catholic colleges and universities) to engage in similar projects supportive of women religious and their essential vocation. A higher public profile contributes to a church culture that encourages and inspires young people to desire religious life.
