Epriest Reaches New Record
INTERNATIONAL | APOSTOLATE | NEWS
Growing online service gives priests useful tools for homilies and parish ministry.

ePriest logo

September 1, 2010. Epriest, a web site and online bulletin service for priests, has reached a new record with close to 8,000 users in the database and over 6,400 bulletin subscriptions.

The e-resource has a number of features that priests around the world have found to be just what they needed. Its weekly homily packs provide an outline of ideas that priests can adapt to their own needs and preaching style. Ready-made homilies in Spanish are also available for priests who need assistance with Hispanic ministry.

The site and its newsletter also offer parish Best Practices, which are ministry ideas that have been tested and proven effective in real parishes, with the endorsement of local pastors and bishops. Best Practices span a wide range of ministry needs, from faith formation, family ministry, youth ministry, vocational ministry, finance, sacraments, outreach to new parishioners, and more.

A new feature, available to those with a free clergy account, is the online forum where priests from around the world can share opinions and experiences on topics such as the liturgy, sacraments, and preaching.

What priests are saying

I just wanted to say thanks very much for the kind and generous service you provide in giving the stimulus for ideas for homilies. They usually trigger me in a very positive direction and I wanted to thank you for this service.

You are in my prayers.

Dear Staff,

Thank you very much for a superb resource for the preparation of our homilies! I was introduced to ePriests recently and I am very impressed with the sound Scriptural and theological analysis of the Readings, as well as the good examples and the interesting applications. By sending it to us on Sunday night for the following Sunday, you give us the opportunity to reflect early on the Scriptures and also you enable us to look for events during the week to strengthen our application.

Prayers and best wishes!!

Dear organisers of epriest.com, hearty congratulations to you. I don´t know how old this site is. I was just recently introduced to it by a priest friend of mine. Thanks for the wonderful work you are doing. I am a priest from India. Remember me in your prayers. I promise to extend my prayerful support for this beautiful and effective ministry of yours. God bless us all.
Thanks a lot.

Thank you so much for a great web site, and especially for the help with the Spanish homilies. I´m one of those priests in a mission diocese who has almost too much to cover, and so your web site comes at a great time in helping me, especially with homily ideas. I´ll pass the site along. This is a true blessing, and I appreciate your dedication and important apostolate.
God bless all!

May the Lord and the Blessed Virgin Mary of the Holy Rosary help you.

This is my first time using ePriest Homily Pack to help with a homily. I just ´volunteered" today to fill in this weekend for another deacon. Your outline is terrific. I can use my own thoughts and illustrations as well.
Thank you and God Bless you abundantly for your work.
