Group Launches “Uplift Your Priest” Campaign


The group Vocation Ministry has launched an international campaign called Uplift Your Priest that runs from April 20-May 1. It encourages parishioners to support their priests by thanking them for all of their sacrifices — especially during Holy Week — to keep all of us connected with our parishes. Choose any of the following and be the light in this dark time as your priest misses you, his flock.

  • Call/text/email your priest
  • Send spiritual bouquets to him
  • Send him drawings or paintings by children
  • Pray, fast, and offer sacrifices for him
  • Make a family video message/song of affirmation for him
  • Create a sidewalk message in front of church/rectory
  • Post picture of your family with your priest
  • Drop off or have dinner/lunch delivered
  • Send financial support to the parish, if able
  • Challenge 3 families/individuals to pray a Rosary for him (think Ice Bucket Challenge on social media)
  • Invite him and other people or families for a digital “gathering”
  • Write him a letter thanking him for his sacrifices
  • Deliver any protective gear or cleaning supplies he may need
