NACAR Board Messages

Cross of peopleNovember – a time to remember and pray for our deceased loved ones and for all who have gone before us.

We at NACAR have spent 2016 looking back, recognizing, and celebrating many who have shepherded the associate-religious relationship over the past several decades. We have been blessed.

With the release of the CARA research reports this summer, we celebrate the present while listening to the promptings of the Holy Spirit for our future. The associate-religious relationship is personally meaningful as well as gift to the Church. Let us all be open to how the Holy Spirit calls us forth to be light for the world through our associate-religious relationships.

As you study the CARA reports and how it frames your future plans, please share what your Calls to Action are with NACAR. We hope that the folder Study Guide  will bring associate communities to a new awareness of the gift and the calling, of community, of empowerment, and of leadership for creating a future for which ‘we could not ask or imagine.'

November is also the time that we in the United States reflect on the many blessings of our lives. The NACAR Board of Directors and Staff pray in gratitude for your ongoing support.
