Brother Ronnie Hingle receives award

Honored for leadership in vocation ministry

Brother Ronnie Hingle, S.C. accepts the Leadership in Vocation Ministry award from Dolores Orzel.

The J.S. Paluch Company's National Vocations Awareness Division awarded Brother Ronald Hingle, S.C., board chair for NRVC, the Leadership in Vocation Ministry Award on August 21 at the opening banquet of the 30th annual J.S. Paluch Vocation Seminar.

The NRVC Board, above, and the staff of NRVC worked with Brother Ronnie Hingle, S.C. to keep the organization moving forward in 2016-17.

Each year the National Vocations Awareness Division (NVAD) of the J.S. Paluch Company gives an award to a person who has made an outstanding contribution to vocation ministry. In presenting the 2017 award, Dolores Orzel, creative director of NVAD, noted that Hingle took on the major task of helping lead NRVC during the 2016 sudden absence of its longtime executive director, Brother Paul Bednarczyk, C.S.C. (who became a leader in his congregation).

Hingle became the NRVC Board chair in 2013 and, teaming with the board and staff, he led the organization through its 2014 and 2016 convocations and the process of hiring the current executive director, Sister Sharon Dillon, S.S.J.-T.O.S.F.  

Dolores Orzel receives flowers from NRVC's Sister Sharon Dillon, S.S.J.-T.O.S.F. and Brother Ronald Hingle, S.C.

"I am honored and grateful for this award, but if anyone deserves an award it's the entire staff: Sister Debbie, Maureen, Marge, Miss Debbie, and Mark, as well as the entire NRVC Board. It was an 'all in' moment, and all these folks were 'in'!" notes Hingle.

Dolores Orzel's contribution also noted

At the same event on August 21 Dolores Orzel was also commended for her many years of organizing the seminar and leading the NVAD. Orzel will retire at the end of 2017. NRVC and many other individuals and groups presented her with tributes and letters of gratitude. Along with personally written tributes,  NRVC gave Orzel a lifetime membership.
