2021 Fraternity of Priests Annual Meeting

July 18-23, 2021 – Cleveland, Ohio (USA)

Sponsored by the Cleveland Fraternity

Join us in Cleveland for the 2021 Annual Meeting and share the brotherhood of our priesthood!   

We look forward to seeing many of our fellow priests from throughout the world come and join us for fellowship, prayer, teachings, and time together in fraternity.

Our main presenter, Sr. Briege McKenna , O.S.C., was born in Ireland and entered the Sisters of St. Clare at the age of fifteen. Following her final vows and after suffering for more than three years with rheumatoid arthritis, she was transferred to her community in Tampa, Florida with the hope that the Florida sunshine would relieve her suffering. At the age of 24, she was miraculously and instantaneously healed during the celebration of the Eucharist and some time later received, in prayer, the gift of healing for which she has become so widely known. In 1974, again during prayer, she was given a deep spiritual insight into the mystery of the call to priesthood. Since then, bishops and priests in many parts of the world have invited her to speak and minister at their retreats and conferences.

May God continue to bless you in your priesthood, drawing you ever closer to the Heart of Jesus, priest and victim.
