New NRVC Study on Families and Vocation

This winter NRVC is launching a new study on a relatively unexplored aspect of vocation: family life and its effect on entrance to vowed and ordained life. The Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA) is conducting the study for NRVC. It will survey Catholic parents, parents of religious and clergy, and focus groups in two to three U.S. regions.

The study release will coincide with the eighth World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia next September, which will include a visit from Pope Francis. The study is being underwritten by a grant from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation.
