The AUSCP is an association of priests whose members strive to be faithful to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to Catholic tradition.

AUSCP members are priests in good standing in dioceses and religious communities and supported and emboldened by the people to whom we are called to minister. We are inspired especially by the teaching of Vatican II as affirmed by Pope Francis.

In order to be a “priests’ voice of hope and joy,” we listen to our members — on line, in person and at our national assemblies — sharing our common concerns with the whole church and the world through our public advocacy. Founded in 2011, the AUSCP is the largest association of priests in the United States.
