Abundance of vocation videos in March

Features of staff and members, NBC video

NRVC member Father Richard Goodin, O.F.M. was featured in an NBC Left Field video about Millennials who have chosen religious life. The video has been viewed more than 38,000 times.

Several online videos featuring NRVC members and staff launched in March, as did an NBC video about Millennials choosing religious life.

In honor of National Catholic Sisters Week (NCSW), NRVC collaborated with several organizations to  produce SisterSpeak, a series of 2-minute online videos about contemporary women religious, their lives and vocations. The series was promoted on the social media channels of all the participants: Religious Formation Conference, the Center for the Study of Consecrated Life,  Communicators for Women Religious, and Giving Voice.

The Archdiocese of Chicago also produced an NCSW series of short online videos called Sister Stories. Among those featured were Sister Deborah Borneman, SS.C.M., director of member relations and services, and the following NRVC members:

  • Sister Lovina Pammit, O.S.F.
  • Sister Mary Beth Bromer, C.S.S.F.
  • Sister Editha Ben, S.P.
  • Sister Jessi Beck, P.B.V.M.

In mid-March NBC Left Field, which produces online-only videos, aired "More young Christians heed call to become priests and nuns" as part of its "Extraordinary Humans" series. It examines the hopes, fears, and dreams of  Millennials who have chosen religious life. NRVC member Father Richard Goodin, O.F.M. is featured, along with Sister Kathy of the Sisters of Christian Charity, which belongs to NRVC. NRVC and its sister organization, National Fund for Catholic Religious Vocations, helped provide information and contacts to the producers.
