Welcome to the new webpage for Tending the Vineyard.
Tending the Vineyard
is a project of the National Religious Retirement Office (NRRO) and funded by
the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation.
Through its work with religious institutes around the
country the NRRO has become increasingly aware that property management issues
significantly impact the quality of life for members of religious institutes as
well as the finances available to support membership and mission.
Through the Tending
the Vineyard project, NRRO aims to help religious institutes address reutilization,
reconfiguration or disposition of space that is no longer suited to the current
needs of the community. Over the next
two years we will be offering workshops and other resources to assist religious
institutes with these complex issues.
On this webpage we will post resources as they become
available. Please click the link below
to learn more about upcoming workshops.
We encourage you to submit the response form either by mail or
electronically. This will help us in
planning the up-coming educational opportunities.
The Office for the project is housed at the
1341 N. Delaware Avenue, Suite 301
