World Priest Day (AKA World Day for the Sanctification of Priests) is all about praying for your priest and his sanctification! Every day our priests pray for us and our intentions as they preside over Mass, hear confessions, baptize our children, or bury our loved ones.
Find a way to pray for him, and don’t forget to tell your priest you are praying for him. You never know what he is going through, sacrificing out of love for his parishioners.
1. Conduct a prayer drive
2. Hold a Holy Hour in honor of your priest
3. Make an announcement at Mass- if there is a deacon, he can ask parishioners to pray for their priest virtually or in-person
4. Live stream a Rosary for Priests on a Facebook Live or YouTube channel
5. Add prayer for priest in the prayers of the faithful
6. Distribute Prayer for Priest prayer cards
Today is the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and World Priest Day, which is a day set aside to pray for priests, so we encourage each of you to pray in a special way today for Fr. ________ that he is strengthened and renewed each day as he serves as a priest of Jesus Christ.
