THE PRIESTS’ FOYER

““We priests are also immersed in today’s subjectivist culture, this culture that exalts the “I” to the point of idolizing it. And then because of a certain pastoral individualism that, unfortunately, is diffused in our dioceses. Therefore, we must react to this with the choice of fraternity.” 

Pope Francis

THE PRIESTS’ FOYER

Situated in the place where Pope John Paul II celebrated Mass in 1986, the International Priests’ Foyer of the Society of St John-Mary Vianney is a guest house at the service of the priesthood. Run by priests, consecrated persons and lay members of the SJMV, it is open to all priests.

Everyone can feel at home, in its simple and warm environment of prayer, just like the welcome which the Curé of Ars, in his day, gave to his fellow priests. Set up to help priests to make a pilgrimage to Ars, the Foyer also organises retreats and study sessions. The Foyer welcomes priests and seminarians alone or in groups for times of retreat and renewal.

A MODEL OF PRIESTHOOD

In his time, a great number of people came to Ars to meet St John-Mary Vianney. They were seeking advice, prayer or  the strengthening of their faith. Still today the Curé of Ars attracts crowds of lay people and priests. By his simple faith-filled life, he speaks to the people of our age and calls each of them back to the fundamental reality of our lives: “God is there”. Convinced of his powerful intercession, our Society turns to him to ask that we priests may always be more conformed in our ministry to the gift of grace we received at our Ordination.
