THE SACERDOTAL FOYER OF ARS

“We priests are also affected by this subjectivist culture of today, this culture of the self-reaching to idolatry. A certain pastoral individualism is also sinking in throughout dioceses… and we must react against this danger by adopting a fraternal lifestyle.”

Pape François

THE SACERDOTAL FOYER

Sitting on the very site where Pope Jean Paul II celebrated mass in 1986, the sacerdotal Foyer is at once a large guest house dedicated to the service of priesthood. It is run by a number of priests, consecrated women and SJMV lay members. It is open to all priests. Everyone should feel at home there, and enjoy a prayerful atmosphere full of warmth and simplicity, reflecting the heartfelt welcome that the Holy Curé D’ars would have given his fellow priests. Devised to cater for visiting pilgrims, it also conducts retreats and formation meetings (training).

A SACERDOTAL MODEL

In his time, a large number of people came to Ars to meet Saint John Mary Vianney. They were seeking advice, a special prayer and more generally some form of consolation. Today, the Saintly Priest still attracts huge numbers of Christian pilgrims and priests. Through his simplicity of life, his unbreakable faith, he still speaks to our contemporaries and reminds each of us of the fundamental reality of our lives : “God is here!” Strong of his powerful mediation, the SJMV turns to him to ask that priests are always connected during their ministry to the gift of grace received at the time of their ordinations.
