Priests are people, too! They grew up in families, they still have families, they shepherd their parish families, and they know the struggles! Sometimes you just need a wise and holy priest to listen and maybe offer some words of understanding, guidance and encouragement.
Fr. Justin Freeman, Fr. Kenneth Breen, Fr. Joseph Eddy, Fr. Daniel Bowen and other Mercedarian friars are available for free pastoral consultation appointments. During your appointment, the priest will offer the guidance of the Catholic Church, a listening ear, and pastoral care. Be assured of confidentiality** during your priestly consultation. If you need to make additional appointments, you are free to schedule with us.
