A Ministry to the Whole Church
NCDVD not only has a positive impact of on the ministry of diocesan vocation directors but it brings something valuable to the entire Church.
- When vocation personnel return to parish work they have a heightened interest in promoting vocations in the parish and diocese.
- NCDVD is a major part of the solution to the problem of sexual abuse. The training and support we give in the selection and screening of priestly candidates are not offered anywhere else in the Church in the United States.
- NCDVD has been instrumental in supporting diocesan priesthood both here in the United States, as well as, internationally. NCDVD continues to offer programs and resources to support discernment, such as our publications and the launch DiocesanPriest.com
- An Advisory Board to NCDVD consisting of Bishops from across the United States allows for input and reflection on the goals and activities of NCDVD and provides an opportunity for substantive discussions on the state of diocesan priestly vocations.
