Priesthood Sunday, the last Sunday in September, is a special day set aside to honor priesthood in the United States. This nationwide event is coordinated and sponsored by the US Council of Serra International.
The lay faithful of all parishes in the U.S. develop their own special way of marking the day and honoring their parish priests at Mass and other parish events, such as social celebrations and school activities. Priesthood Sunday planning guide
Priesthood Sunday is designed to be an event led by the laity, but be sure to ask each parish priest to participate by talking about how they experienced and answered their own calling and about priests who have inspired them.
