2009 Year of the Priest


Year for Priests
Welcome to our jubilee Year of the Priest specialty store. The Year of the Priest has begun!
His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI previously announced that the entire Church will celebrate a special jubilee year for priests beginning on June 19, 2009.  The Year of the Priesthood will commemorate the 150th anniversary of the death of St. Jean Vianney, the Cure of Ars. He noted that the year also marks the “150th anniversary of the death of the saintly 'Cure of Ars', St. Jean Marie Vianney, a true example of a pastor at the service of Christ's flock."

The Supreme Pontiff inaugurated the Jubliee Year of the Priesthood on June 19 by presiding at a Vespers service in St. Peter's Basilica, where the relics of the 'Cure of Ars' were brought for the occasion by Bishop Guy Bagnard of Belley-Ars, France.
During the course of the Year, Pope Benedict XVI will proclaim St. Jean Marie Vianney as the patron saint of all the priests of the world. A "Directory for Confessors and Spiritual Directors" will also be published, as will a collection of texts by the Holy Father on essential aspects of the life and mission of priests in our time.
The jubilee year will close June 19, 2010, with the Holy Father presiding at a "World Meeting of Priests" in St. Peter's Square, Rome.
St. John Vianney, pray for all priests and pray for us!
