We are passionate about our ministry, and yours. Here's why!
We serve the People of God in parishes and other ministries. We seek to add a priests’ voice to the public conversation within our pilgrim church, among bishops and lay persons, vowed religious, ordained deacons and others.
Our concerns are your concerns: good liturgy, social justice, the role of women in our church, immigration policies that reflect Gospel values, the dignity of all human lives, and a church that welcomes all the People of God.
Our Mission: To be an association of U.S. Catholic priests offering mutual support and a collegial voice through dialogue, contemplation and prophetic action on issues affecting Church and society.
Our Vision: To be a Priests Voice of Hope and Joy within our Pilgrim Church.
The AUSCP: For Members and Friends
Founded in 2011, the AUSCP is the largest association of priests in the United States. We are priests in good standing in dioceses and religious communities, and we invite new members to join us. We are inspired by the teaching of Vatican II and support the continuing pursuit of its implementation. We invite the support of friends to whom and with whom we minister. Friends embolden us with their faith and support. To be a voice of hope and joy, we must listen to our members and friends — on line, in person and at our national assemblies. We do. Then we share our common concerns with church and world through prophetic advocacy.
