Year of Consecrated Life logo

Vocation ministers and their communities are invited to use a special Year of Consecrated Life logo developed by NRVC and VISION Vocation Guide.

With the theme of "Wake up the world!"—inspired by Pope Francis' call to action to men and women religious—the logo celebrates and promotes consecrated life. Consider using it on websites, blogs, print materials, etc.
