How it Works

Renewing the Priestly Heart can be used in a variety of productive ways. Dioceses may choose to lead a clergy renewal process that starts with a priest gathering and unfolds with all priests being invited to participate in the unifying experience of monthly small-group discussions. It can also be used at the diocesan or local level with existing or newly formed small groups of priests, or as a resource for personal reflection.

The resource book contains 12 sessions that carefully weave reflections and questions on topics of vital importance to living and serving as a priest today.

The Special Audio Edition offers 13 inspiring commentaries and first-hand stories on living the priestly life today as well as the fully-narrated text of the resource book.
This format is convenient for listening at home or on the go.
