Let's get to work!
"Work is fundamental to the dignity of a person. Work, to use an image, 'anoints' us with dignity, fills us with dignity, makes us like God, who has worked and still works, who always acts." --Pope Francis
Five signs religious life might be right for you . . .
HIGHLIGHTS FROM VISION 2014
VISION 2014 is on parish reading racks and in Campus Ministry offices now. Among the featured articles is "Five signs religious life might be right for you," by Sister Colleen Smith, ASCJ. Be sure to read and pass along the issue to anyone who is interested in learning more about prayer, discerning God's will, being Catholic, and living vows as a religous sister, brother, priest or other member of consecrated life.
Send links to articles in the DigitalVocationGuide.org to friends, family, or parishioners to help them gain insight into this unique and joyful life choice.
A multi-lingual POSTER (English, Spanish, French) is included in each issue! Display in classrooms, dorm rooms, churches, or ministry offices.

IMAGES AND INSIGHTS GLEANED FROM WORLD YOUTH DAY 2013
THE POPE RECEIVED A WARM WELCOME!
THE PILGRIMS CAME IN ALL SHAPES AND SIZES AND WERE HEADED IN ALL DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS!
THE VOCATION VERANDA, SPONSORED BY HOLY CROSS FAMILY MINISTRIES, THE NATIONAL RELIGIOUS VOCATION CONFERENCE, AND VISION VOCATION GUIDE, WAS AS COZY AND INVITING AS THE PRIESTS, BROTHERS, AND SISTERS, WERE GRACIOUS AND COMFORTING.
OUR VISION BANNER WAS VERY COOL! (Pictured to the left of the poster: NRVC Executive Editor, Br. Paul Bednarczyk, CSC and NRVC board member Fr. Anthony Vinson, OSB)
YOU COULDN'T MISS THE SIGNS OF GOD's PRESENCE!
What a time we had. The VISION team highly recommends the World Youth Day journey to Catholics of all ages. You will be renewed, restored, and recommitted to living a life of service to God and others. Krakow, Poland here we come! (In 2016).
