“The Christian faithful, for their part, should realize their obligations to their priests, and with filial love they should follow them as their pastors and fathers. In like manner, sharing their cares, they should help their priests by prayer and work insofar as possible so that their priests might more readily overcome difficulties and be able to fulfill their duties more fruitfully” (Presbyterorium Ordinis, 58).

Adopt-a-Priest’s “Suggested Daily Prayer” is sent to all sponsors to help with your prayer commitment. It is more than just a prayer, it is an offering of all your good works for priests. You are free to use this prayer or to offer any prayer(s) of your choosing. The main thing that I encourage through this program is consistent daily prayer to support your adopted priest in his daily life and priestly ministry.

Anyone willing to pledge daily prayer for a priest may register with the Daughters of Mary, Mother of Priests to become a sponsor. Membership is on a yearly basis for all sponsors and is renewable annually. Many sponsors choose to renew their pledge of spiritual adoption year after year (see “renewal” button on the registration form). Please join the growing number of those who participate in this special ministry that so honors Christ the Eternal High Priest!
The face of the priesthood that we support is the face of Christ Himself. By supporting the individual priest, you help to support the great mission of Christ to which all priests are consecrated and sent. In the Adopt-a-Priest program there is no direct contact between the priest and his sponsor. This helps to deepen the sacrificial nature of your prayer and will at the same time do much to support your priest in his own priestly sacrifice. You will therefore receive only basic details of your adopted priest, excluding his full name and contact information.
