For Immediate Release

World Priest Day to be celebrated on October 30th

Worldwide Marriage Encounter is sponsoring World Priest Day on Sunday, October 30, 2011, which coincides with the Serra Club’s Priesthood Sunday. World Priest Day focuses on celebrating the ongoing affirmation of priests and building of relationships between couples and priests. The mission and purpose of World Priest Day is to celebrate and affirm the men who commit their lives to the Lord and the Church through the Sacrament of Holy Orders. It is an opportunity for Catholic parishioners to thank, affirm and share their love and support for priests.

It is designed to be a day or several days to rejoice in the Sacrament of Holy Orders. On this day, or during the week preceding or following it, Catholics across the country are encouraged to develop one or several activities to affirm priests. This will be a unique occasion for reaching out to priests. Go to for ideas that you can use. The World Priest Day National Coordinating Team encourages you to celebrate the priests you know and love.
