The Ministry to Priests supports the active and retired priests of the Diocese in their ongoing spiritual, fraternal and pastoral development. The Director serves as a “priest for priests,” providing resources for spiritual direction, sacramental reconciliation, priest support groups, the mentoring of newly ordained priests, the visitation of elderly and infirm priests, and the acculturation process for international missionary priests. He fosters fraternity and hospitality to all priests serving the local Church of the Diocese of St. Petersburg.
