The Conference of Religious (COR) is the association established for the benefit of the major religious superiors of England and Wales and represents religious leaders by uniting them in collaborative initiatives.

The CORrespondent

As always at this time of year, we are busy preparing for our AGM in Swanwick, and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible there.

We are lucky to have Sr Pat Murray IBVM as our keynote speaker, and also to welcome the new Apostolic Nuncio, Archbishop Edward Joseph Adams. He was unable to come to our AGM last year, so we are particularly pleased he can join us on the Tuesday to celebrate Mass and be with us for the celebratory dinner.

National Office for Vocation

The National Office for Vocation is an Office of the Roman Catholic Church in England and Wales. The inspiration for the creation of the Office came from the Church document of 1997 entitled ‘New Vocations for a New Europe, (In Verbo Tuo.)’ This offers a vision of the Church as a community of the called whose task is to call others.
