MISSION: To serve Catholic priests by promoting and inviting ongoing human, spiritual, intellectual and pastoral formation.


To build up the Body of Christ by fostering a holy and healthy clergy with strong morale and deep fraternity who will continue the work of Christ with a servant’s heart.


  • As a professional resource, we endeavor to support priests through education, communication and inspiration.
  • Empowered by God’s grace, we seek to develop content collaboratively among our staff, contributors and based on the insights of our advisory committee and readers.

Through the Church's official prayer, priests can grow closer to Christ
