Online support for priests

Catholics Come Home, an apostolate that aims to bring former Faithful back into the fold, is offering a sneak peek at its newest initiative, a website that offers support for priests.

You can check out a preview at EncouragePriests.org. The interactive site will launch, appropriately enough, on June 20, which is Father's Day and which also marks the conclusion of the special Year for Priests.

In a statement, Catholics Come Home founder Tom Peterson said: “It’s timely to launch this movement during the ‘Year for Priests’ as declared by Pope Benedict XVI (June 2009-June 2010), and to continue supporting the priesthood for many years to come! Our mission is to encourage priests, and promote priestly vocations through our love and prayers.”
