Quotes

I am deeply indebted to St Joseph's Young Priests Society for the tremendous work you do in providing financial assistance to our seminarians, towards their education and seminary costs. No less appreciated is your prayerful support. I look forward to joining with you all at the St. Joseph's Young Priests Society Annual National Pilgrimage to Knock. I have no doubt that it will be a spiritual and grace-filled occasion.

I take this opportunity to express my deep appreciation and profound gratitude to you and to all the members of St. Joseph's Young Priests Society for your extraordinary generosity towards our students. This is deeply appreciated by myself and means so much to our Archdiocese. My late Mam was a promoter and I am very conscious of the wonderful work that you do. I pray God's blessing and the protection of Our of Lady on you all.

May St Joseph protect St Joseph’s Young Priests Society that is under his patronage. May he protect all its members and their work for the Society. Especially may he be the protector of all our priests, all our seminarians and all whom God is calling to the vocation of the ministerial priesthood.

I thank you for the enormous support you continue to give our seminarian community, but I also ask you to keep in your prayers the accompaniment of our younger priests in our parishes and communities, who need our support and encouragement as much as those in seminary formation.

On behalf of the people and priests of the diocese I wish to acknowledge and thank St Joseph's Young Priests Society for the continued and invaluable support, both financially and spiritually which is given to our Seminarians and Priests. I pray God's blessing on all your work

The generous contributions of SJYP are very welcome, particularly as the annual 'seminarian collection' in the diocese does not usually meet the diocesan outlay. Your ongoing prayerful support is much needed and appreciated, as well. In these changing times, I ask that you continue to keep all our young priests in your prayers.
