 "The witness of a priestly life well lived brings nobility to the Church, calls forth admiration among the faithful, and is a source of blessings for the community; it is the best way to promote vocations, the most authentic invitation to other young people to respond positively to the Lord's call.  It is true collaboration in building the Kingdom of God!"—Pope Benedict XVI, Meeting with clergy and religious in Aparecida, Brazil, May 12, 2007

 

Priesthood

 

The Secretariat of Clergy, Consecrated Life and Vocations (CCLV) serves the bishops' committee on CCLV which provides leadership regarding priestly life and ministry and to respond to the needs and concerns of priests. Throughout its history, the Committee has developed documents and other courses of action by which bishops have supported and challenged the life and ministry of priests.

The Secretariat assists the Committee to fulfill its purpose by doing research and developing drafts regarding the Committee's projects, by implementing the Committee's decisions, by developing communication about the Committee's activities, and by being available for consultation with individual dioceses and religious institutes. The Secretariat also assists the Bishops' Committee on Child and Youth Protection which develops projects and resources to assist bishops.
