Program areas at Opus Bono Sacerdotii

Opus Bono Sacerdotii provides direct financial assistance to and on behalf of active, retired, suspended, laicized, or incarcerated roman catholic priests for a variety of needs, including living expenses (e.g., food, lodging, transportation, job-search costs, healthcare, and automobile insurance and repair), legal expenses associated with canon law (also known as "church law") proceedings, legal expenses associated with secular law proceeding (e.g., criminal and civil actions), prison commissary funds, and expenses related to compliance with parole terms. Direct financial assistance takes two forms: recurring and emergency. Recurring assistance is typically provided to priests who lack enough funds to make ends meet each month. Emergency assistance is provided on an as-needed basis. Priests who receive emergency assistance often become recipients of recurring assistance.

Opus Bono Sacerdotii advocates for active, retired, suspended, laicized, or incarcerated roman catholic priests by engaging with vatican officials and (primarily) with u.s. based cardinals and bishops. Staff attend bishops' conferences, meet personally with bishops and their chiefs of staff, and communicate regularly with the holy father and the vatican congregations responsible for clergy issues, informing them of the challenges facing priests and recommending ways to resolve them in ways that accord with the authentic teaching of the roman catholic church and of the holy father and his predecessors.

Opus Bono Sacerdotii ministers to active, retired, suspended, laicized, or incarcerated roman catholic priests by: (1) providing 24-hour telephone support for priests facing spiritual and emotional crises; (2) offering spiritual support to priests accused of wrongdoing by referring them canon and secular lawyers and by attending court proceedings for moral support and protection from physical assaults; (3) ministering to incarcerated priests by providing spiritual publications, fraternal support through prison visits, and assisting with re-entry into the community at the end of their sentences; (4) providing job-placement assistance for those priests who can no longer minister publicly; and (5) teaching independent living skills to those priests who have become responsible for their own financial affairs but did not acquire those skills in their former ministry.
