Religious Communities Reach Out to Youth

NRVC members representing 55 religious institutes took part in the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC), held November 19-21 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Vocation ministers hosted exhibit booths, volunteered as mentors to teenaged animators, and assisted as volunteers in a variety of capacities. These vocation personnel were present to some 23,000 Catholic teens, parents, and youth ministers who attended this biennial event—the largest of its kind in the country.

In commemoration of the Year of Consecrated Life, 15 religious communities also taught their spirituality and led prayers in the NCYC chapel. In addition Brother Ronnie Hingle, S.C., NRVC board chair, and Sister Debbie  Borneman, SS.C.M. presented a workshop on discernment that involved NRVC members. Below is an overview of the event in photos. Find additional photos on the NRVC Facebook page.
