Establishment of the Fund was a highlight of his tenure, say former NRVC executive director

Br. Paul Bednarczyk, C.S.C., former executive director of the National Religious Vocation Conference and a founding member and first board chair of NFCRV, said in a recent interview with the National Catholic Register that he was "very proud" that he "established the National Fund for Catholic Religious Vocations to assist religious communities in financing the educational debt of candidates for religious life."

Br. Paul was recently named Superior General of the Congregation of Holy Cross, an historic election following a Vatican change to canon law that allows brothers to serve as superior generals in mixed congregations of priests and brothers. The Vocation Fund is grateful for Br. Paul's early vision and continued support of our mission!
