Our Catholic priests, sisters and brothers give their entire lives in service to the church: our parishes, schools, and communities. They are there for us in our times of need. Religious take a vow of poverty and many small dioceses cannot afford specialized care for their members.
Your support helps us ensure that no priest, brother or sister is ever turned away because of a lack of funds.
Your support helps build a healthier church. Our Catholic Church is not a building or an institution. We are a living organism: the Body of Christ. Our church belongs to Christ and he asks all of us to roll up our sleeves and help where we are able.
The impact of treatment reaches far beyond the individual. Clergy and religious men and women are frequently in positions of leadership within their local communities (parishes, schools, dioceses, religious orders, and other institutions). Their health significantly impacts the systems of which they are apart and the individuals and families to whom they minister.
After completion of residential treatment over seventy-six percent of men and women return to active ministry. They often return, with a deeper compassion and empathy for others, reaching out to those who share the same struggles.
Together, we strengthen the church.
“While he was still a long way off, his father caught sight of him, and was filled with compassion. He ran to his son, embraced him and kissed him…. Let us celebrate with a feast, because this son of mine was dead, and has come to life again; he was lost and has been found!”
– Luke 20: 23-24
