The first five years of priesthood present a series of increasingly complex challenges. The Institute for Priests and Presbyterates offers critical guidance during this time with these programs.

For New Priests

Settling into Priesthood  integrates the personal counsel of a trained transition facilitator during a newly ordained priest's first year with a five-day workshop conducted at Saint Meinrad in the spring following ordination.

Gearing Up to Be a Pastor is a five-day workshop focusing on pastoral and leadership skills for priests in the second year after ordination.
