From June 10-13, NRVC sponsored a workshop in Notre Dame, Indiana called "Share the Sacred," which kicked off an ongoing project of young adults serving as Vocation Ambassadors around the country.

Twelve religious communities prepared a young adult to serve as a spokesperson for their community and for religious life in general. The communities attended in teams of three: young adult ambassador, communications professional, and vocation director. Three representatives from Vocations Ireland also took part in the event, along with several individuals who were on the Vocation Ambassadors design team.

Participants learned communications strategies and tactics, and each team devised its own project for sending forth Vocation Ambassadors to promote religious life. In addition to commissioning ambassadors, the workshop helped vocation directors and communications professionals to better work and plan together.

Because of the positive response of participants, NRVC is considering offering the Vocation Ambassadors kickoff workshop again next year. Photos of the event are on NRVC’s Flickr site: flickr.com/nrvc
