As a member partner of NOCERCC (National Organization for Continuing Education for Roman Catholic Clergy) the Saint John Vianney Center (SJVC) has offered confidential calls to the NOCERCC organization and priests and clergy. In a recent message from NOCERCC President-Elect, Very Rev. John McCrone, he states, “in times of challenge and difficulties such as what we are all facing right now, we certainly all feel overwhelmed. If you feel you need someone to talk to or one of your priests need someone to talk to, phone conversation is being offered.”
Please call SJVC at 610.518.2000 and ask for David Shellenberger by name, President of SJVC. You will be asked for your diocese/religious community and no other identifying information and you will be transferred to David.
Saint John Vianney Center has been ministering to clergy and men and women religious for nearly 75 years and has been a resource to those in ministry worldwide. We are very familiar with the stress, anxiety, and challenges that may arise during ministry and the affects that it can have. We are here to listen and support you at this very difficult and challenging time should you want to talk.
