The mission of the Foundation of Prayer for Priests, an international Eucharistic, Marian apostolate, is to spiritually advance and protect the holiness and fruitfulness of the Priesthood of the Lord by igniting a movement of prayer, sacrifice, service, and study. Through the four pillars, we encourage women, men, families, parishes, to discover and live their call to spiritual motherhood and fatherhood of souls, especially for clergy and seminarians. Timely and vital is this vision since St. John Vianney taught, “When people want to destroy religion, they begin by attacking the priest.” We exist to build up the Body of Christ. www.foundationforpriests.org
