Priests Thriving Not Surviving, Inc. is dedicated to encouraging and empowering priests to practice good self-care in all areas of life so they can not just survive life feeling burned out, but thrive in their ministries and priesthood.
Their site provides access to resources to help priests and seminarians thrive physically, mentally, and spiritually.
The Saint John Vianney Center (SJVC) serves Catholic Clergy, Consecrated Men and Women Religious and Clergy of other Christian denominations worldwide, healing, renewing, and restoring each person to appropriate, fulfilling, and effective ministry.
Open to all clergy in the diocese, the Advent Day of Prayer provides a much needed day to focus on the spiritual dimension of the self, a dimension that is most at risk of being neglected in the busyness of ministerial life. Join your fellow priests and deacons in growing in a deeper communion with the Lord in this day of prayer and reflection.
Here are some local sites available for clergy to visit for days of recollection, silent retreat, or other spiritual exercises. Please note these listings do not constitute a specific endorsement, nor does it include an exhaustive listing of possible locations.
