Greetings, brothers in Christ!
I can’t thank you enough. Because of your continued generosity, NFPC continues to grow stronger and more vibrant, serving the needs of the U.S. presbyterate.
With your financial support, we continue to connect priests and dioceses across the U.S. For instance, we were able to connect a priest with a laryngectomy to another with the same condition for idea exchange and encouragement. In another case, a Vicar General facing parish mergers called us for input, concerned about Mass scheduling with long travel distances. We provided connections to some dioceses whose priests typically have long travel distances between parishes, to discuss ideas and solutions. We can help you find answers too – call us!
One of our most effective ways to connect priests is our National Convocation of Priests. It is an outstanding gathering of priests from across the nation praying together, enjoying many great presentations, finding some quiet time, and the overwhelming favorite of attendees, sharing fraternity and conversation with brother priests, from Alaska to Florida. It’s a remarkable gift. Make sure you set aside time for our 2018 Convocation, April 23-26, in Chicago, our 50th anniversary celebration. You are worth it!
For a quick review of all that your gift to NFPC provides, go to nfpc.org under our About Us tab and click through the NFPC Today Slide Show. It’s a brief summary of who we are and what we do. Show it to your brother priests and/or bishop, and get them on board too!
Keep your support coming! With diocesan budgets in flux, your support is keeping NFPC going as a resource for all U.S. priests. Nfpc.org has quick-click options for online donations or individual memberships, or you can mail your donation to 333 N. Michigan Ave., Suite 1114, Chicago, IL 60601, or call us at 312-442-9700.

It is truly an honor to advocate for and support you and all priests. A warm thank you for your past donations and for your future contributions. Your brother priests thank you as well.
Let’s continue to pray for each other.
In communion, brotherhood, and solidarity,
Rev. Anthony Cutcher,
