In Honor of the World Day for Consecrated Life: Part 2  of an Interview with Anne Folan, Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations

In Honor of the World Day for Consecrated Life: Part 2 of an Interview with Anne Folan, Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations

February 10, 2021

In honor of the World Day for Consecrated Life, we are replaying the second part of an interview with Anne Folan. Anne discusses the toll student loan debt is taking on vocations, as well as possible solutions to this crisis. Anne Folan is a member of the Board of Directors of the Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations, a nonprofit Catholic organization that makes grants for student loan debt relief for young men and women with vocations to religious life. 

45 million Americans owe student loan debt, collectively owing more than $1.5 trillion dollars. Two out of every three college graduates will graduate with a student debt load averaging over $30,000. For individuals discerning a call to religious life, student loan debt can create a tremendous obstacle they didn't consider when pursuing their college degrees because religious communities usually don't allow a person with unresolved debts to enter formation.
