St. Anselm’s hosted the fall meeting of vocation directors in Region IV of the National Religious Vocation Conference (NRVC). Those who attended represented twelve different congregations of men and women. The main agenda item was to plan for young adult half-day retreats in Baltimore, Washington, and Arlington dioceses next spring in connection with the Year of Consecrated Life declared by Pope Francis. These events will be held at Notre Dame of Maryland University, St. Anselm’s Abbey, and at the Bristow Benedictine Sisters of Virginia. Detailed information will shortly be available on the websites and in publications of the congregations participating.
