2022 Membership Renewal

The majority of our members will renew their membership for 2022 in January.

If your community is unsure of your renewal month, please contact Ryan Hoffmann, Associate Director, by email at

Members can renew their membership online (using their membership ID number) or by downloading the 2022 membership renewal form, filling out, and sending into the Conference.

Click here to access renewal links and forms   

The two persons whom you designate on the renewal form will receive all RFC materials directly; we suggest one be a formator, the second in leadership or communications. Others in your congregation/unit can also receive these materials directly for an additional fee of $70. Each member congregation/unit is assigned a unique username and password; we ask you to circulate these to your vowed members so that all can take direct advantage of the scores of resources on the RFC website.

As a reminder, upon renewal every member of your congregation/unit is a member of the RFC and enjoys the benefits of membership (e.g., access to resources, discounts, etc.).

Your participation in the mission of the Conference not only serves your members, but also prepares the generation of women and men religious who will follow.

If you need assistance renewing your membership, please contact Sofia Mikolyash, Operations Manager, at or by phone at 773.675.8362.

We look forward to continuing to be at the service of initial and lifelong formation for women and men religious. Thank you in advance for helping advance RFC’s mission and respond to the emerging future of religious life!
