About ePriest

Today's priests face real challenges

  1. steadily increasing demands on their time
  2. new and complex pastoral needs stemming from a diverse and secularized society
  3. often having to live and work alone, surrounded by a culture hostile to the priestly vocation

ePriest's three services to today's parish priests

  1. weekly best practices
    • profiles of practices that are currently working in real parishes
    • touching all sectors of parish life: sacraments, outreach, faith formation, family, youth, vocation promotion, administration and finance, and ongoing priestly formation
  2. weekly homily packs
    • ingredients for effective homilies
    • preaching tips
    • ready-made Spanish-language homilies
  3. an online community
    • where English-speaking priests from around the world can exchange ideas, experiences, and encouragement

ePriest's ideal is to be A Resource for Catholic Priests, dedicated to loving Christ, building the Church, and serving people.
