Dear Friends,

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
Marianist Center
1341 N. Delaware Avenue, Suite 301
Philadelphia, PA 19125-4309

Phone:  (215) 634-4116

Francine Cruz is serving as administrative assistant for the project.

We hope to be of service to you.

Stephen Glodek, SM
Project Director
