Finding and forming the next generation of religious in Canada was a popular topic at this year's National Association of Vocation and Formation Directors Conference.
About 100 people attended the biannual conference in Calgary March 11 to 14. This year's theme was Called to Discipleship: Witnesses to Hope. The conference focuses on both vocation and formation.
Sister Mary Rowell said with fewer people entering religious life, the peer group for new vocations is small.
