The Year of the Priest

On June 19, 2009 Pope Benedict XVI declared 2009 and 2010 to be to the Year of the Priest.

As Knights, we are all aware of the oath we have taken to speak out in support of our priests, and for all of those who have chosen the consecrated life.

We are often called to pray for vocations to the priesthood, yet we are sometimes unaware of the great sacrifices our priests make on our behalf. In accordance with this, every issue of The Explorer this year will feature a biographical sketch of a notable priest or group of priests, in response to the Pope’s call to celebrate the holy life.
