Have You Thanked Your Priest Lately? EncouragePriests.org to Be Discussed on CatholicTV
On September 28th, a relatively new website which is meant to encourage priests and vocations will be discussed on the CatholicTV talk show “This is the Day”.
After talking to a priest, Tom Peterson, the founder of Catholics Come Home, was reminded that priests typically have heavy workloads, demanding ministries, and sometimes feel lonely.
Tom came up with the idea of an online resource that would help lay people encourage and support their priests. EncouragePriests.org does this by offering special emails and notes called “Collar Hollers” which can be mailed or emailed to priests. These notes say thank you to priests and “spiritual bouquet” notes let priests know that the sender is praying for them. Senders of spiritual bouquets can offer masses, Rosaries, Adoration and other prayers and devotions for their priests.
www.encouragepriests.org was launched by the Catholic media apostolate, Catholics Come Home, more information may be found at http://www.catholicscomehome.org/
Tom Peterson will be interviewed on the live talk show “This is the Day”. This is the Day airs at 10:30AM ET at CatholicTV.com and on CatholicTV cable outlets. The show is rebroadcast at 7:30PM and other times during the week.
Tom Peterson has over 25 years of experience as an award-winning and record-setting national corporate advertising executive and entrepreneur. Mr. Peterson speaks at National Catholic Conferences and pro-life events throughout the United States and internationally, and has presented at the Vatican and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. He has also been featured in hundreds of media outlets.
