Today is Priesthood Sunday, September 24, 2023

Today is Priesthood Sunday, a day set aside annually to reaffirm the priesthood of Jesus Christ and its central place in the life of the Church and to honor priests, without whom the Holy Sacraments could not be conferred.

To mark this annual event, the Vocation Office for the Diocesan Priesthood commissioned a film featuring Jim Wahlberg, keynote speaker from this year’s Man Up Philly conference. The brother of Mark Wahlberg, Jim is a film producer and writer who was profoundly influenced by the priestly ministry of a prison chaplain and an encounter with Mother Teresa. During this film, Jim shares his extreme gratitude for the gift of the priesthood in his life.

On this Priesthood Sunday, we encourage and invite you to thank the many priests in your life who have been a part of your faith journey.
