What better gift to give an important priest in your life than by honoring him and supporting future generations of holy men through the Institute’s mission of spiritual formation of seminarians and priests.
The St. John Paul II Fund for Priests is a wonderful opportunity for you to honor a special priest in your life and assure that his brother priests have the spiritual formation support they need. The Institute is the only ministry in North America dedicated exclusively to the spiritual lives of priests and seminarians.
“For over 50 years, Fr. Thomas J. Halley, S.J. was an important part of my family, whether it was bringing communion to my invalid grandmother, sitting up all night in the hospital with my dying mother, co-officiating my marriage, or concelebrating my father’s funeral. He prayed with us, listened to us, shared meals with us, and was our friend. I will always treasure that he loved us and was always there for us, just like Jesus.”
- Lawrence A. Dwyer, Omaha
Many individuals like Larry have honored priests who have affected their lives by opening and funding an IPF Saint John Paul II Fund for Priests account in the priest’s name. These donations are used by IPF to support the spiritual formation programs offered to diocesan seminarians and priests who have a deep desire for a closer relationship with Jesus, similar to the priests being honored.
