Desmond Foundation For Priests In Need promotes the priesthood and stands by those who have lost everything for the sake of the Gospel.
“Abandoned.” It’s one scary word. Where does a Catholic priest go when the walls close in, when he needs crisis care? Who ministers to the minister?
Desmond Foundation For Priests In Need is the name of a unique lay organization that helps priests in need, when no one else can or will. We respond to any call for help – regardless of “guilt,” “innocence” or the nature of the problem.
“We turn no priest away,”
Priests represent the living image of Christ, but they are also human. When personal problems arise in their lives, Desmond Foundation For Priests In Need is there to provide whatever is needed: emergency funds for special circumstances (for example, a missed mortgage payment or travel costs when a parent dies), counseling, canonical support, legal aid for criminal or civil litigation, and even consolation for priests in prison.
