"I highly recommend the Encore Priests program at Saint Meinrad seminary. The 'Retirement Success Profile - Diocesan Priest'  frames a number of spiritual challenges that a priest needs to give some thought to as he considers retirement. I can't wait to share the experience with my priests' support group and to strongly encourage a couple of them who are my age to attend the upcoming Encore Priests program."


"Understanding how we approach retirement begins with our ordination. The sooner we balance our life, our priesthood, the easier the transitions in our life are seen as positive and life-giving."
