Biography

In order to answer the call of our Catholic Bishops to embrace all persons with disabilities, the National Apostolate for Inclusion Ministry (NAfIM) leads the Catholic community to the full inclusion of persons with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities (IDD). We seek to:
Enhance awareness and acceptance of their dignity and gifts; establish community with persons with IDD and those who support them; identify and promote opportunities that encourage people with IDD to share their gifts; foster quality spiritual development for all persons with IDD; identify and promulgate valuable information and resources; encourage appropriate pastoral care for persons with IDD and those who support them; support implementation at all levels.
The universal call to holiness leads us to recognize that the Body of Christ suffers when some members are not invited to full participation, therefore the NAfIM envisions that every person with IDD will be welcome to full inclusion in our Catholic communities.

Biography

The National Fund for Catholic Religious Vocation (NFCRV) was established in 2014 by the National Religious Vocation Conference in response to a CARA study that discovered that over 1,000 vocations to the religious have been lost over the last ten years. Viable candidates, carrying significant college debt, could not be accepted because their chosen order or institute was unable to subsume this debt. With an initial funding grant from Conrad Hilton Foundation and assistance from the GHR Foundation, NFCRV’s sole purpose is to grow the number of new vocations to the religious life of priests, brothers and sisters by supporting viable candidates carrying college debt which their prospective orders or institutes cannot subsume.
