Introducing our Serving with Sisters Ambassadors!
Many CVN programs offer volunteers the chance to live and work alongside men and women religious. This experience, whether one week or one year in length, is a unique opportunity to experience the rich charism of religious communities, grow in faith through prayer, lend a hand to their ministries in service to the poor, and develop long-lasting relationships. CVN’s Serving with Sisters Ambassadors bring awareness to current volunteers’ journeys of spirituality, social justice, community, and simplicity in CVN member programs sponsored by Catholic sisters. Through creative reflection, conversation, and experience, Ambassadors share the joy, energy and fulfillment of serving alongside Catholic Sisters. Stay tuned to hear from CVN Ambassadors over the course of their service year!
