Vatican City, 18 January 2010. In order to promote the beauty of the Catholic priesthood, the web portal ( has launched a contest of priestly stories during the Year for Priests in which priests narrate the most inspiring moment of their priestly ministry. The prize for the best story will be a trip to Rome at the closing of the priestly year in June of 2010. Should the winner be residing in Rome, the prize will consist of a pilgrimage to the Holy Land.

According to the organizers, there is a two-fold objective to the competition. On one hand, it is a gift to priests as they celebrate their year, as reflection upon the extraordinary presence of God’s Providence in one’s own life and ministry is a great means of renewal and hope. Secondly, it is a gift from priests to the Church, as the best testimonies will be compiled into a book at the end of the contest for the enrichment of Catholics everywhere.

According to the rules of the contest, the maximum length of the story is 700 words, and only priests may participate, at no charge.

Entries for the contest will be received up until March 19, 2010. Look for more information in:
