Sharing the experience of the 1st Summer Course for Priests 2005 –

“I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is within you” (2 Tim 1:6)


In accordance with the Magisterium of the Church, The Pontifical Institute Notre Dame of Jerusalem Center and The Sacerdos Institute, under the patronage of The Congregation for the Clergy, have organized the first course of priestly renewal in Jerusalem and are offering it to priests from all over the world. Priestly holiness is the fulcrum of the new evangelization in the third millennium, since the priest is the bridge between God and man.
This course aims at renewing the priestly character received at ordination, and is going to be held in the very place where Christ instituted the priesthood.
In this way, it is hoped that the course will be a fountain of grace, a restoring experience and a vigorous motivation for the life and ministry of every priest.John Paul II in Pastores Dabo Vobis reminds us that the essence of a priest’s life is fidelity to the character received in ordination:
“It is the Holy Spirit, poured out in the sacrament, who sustains the priest in this faithfulness and accompanies him and encourages him along this path of unending conversion. This permanent formation is a requirement of the priest’s own faithfulness to his ministry, to his very being. It is love for Jesus Christ and fidelity to oneself. But it is also an act of love for the people of God, at whose service the priest is placed” (PDV 70).
Every year there will be two courses on the same dates: one in the summer and one in the winter.
