About the Institute for Priests and
newly ordained priest or a soon-to-be pastor has lots of questions
about his new responsibilities. Many of these new issues aren't
taught in the seminary: parish budgets, volunteer boards, parish
revitalization, the list goes on and on.
Since 2005, Saint Meinrad's Institute for Priests and
Presbyterates (IPP) has been offering programs to help new priests
and new pastors make a successful transition into their roles as
your parish leaders.
Programs are also offered to meet new needs that are surfacing
in today's parishes, such as helping international priests minister
successfully in this country.
A grant from the Lilly Endowment, Inc. gave the Institute for
Priests and Presbyterates its start, but Saint Meinrad has
established an endowment to ensure that your priests get the
ongoing formation they need.
