Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Opus Bono is a non-profit organization that in partnership with its benefactors, assist bishops, religious superiors, and Vatican officials in finding solutions for the proper care and treatment of priests who are experiencing difficulties in their personal lives and priestly ministry. Since its founding Opus Bono has been contacted by hundreds of priests and many bishops, including the Holy See. As a highly labor intensive mission, Opus Bono operates with an experienced staff of professionals. The majority of the work of the Opus Bono staff is in consulting and caring for priests who are experiencing acute difficulties, which may even be ministry threatening. The staff works tirelessly and many times around the clock. Opus Bono is available twenty-four hours a day and every day of the year for Catholic priests in urgent need.

By using social media and other outlets we hope to get the word out so that priests will know who they can call if they are in trouble. We also depend on donations to survive, so spreading the word allows us to find people willing to donate to help priests.

Opus Bono Sacerdotii (OBS) is the only lay organization of its kind that assists Catholic priests with difficulties that require the aid we offer.
We turn no priests away who need our help when we can help them.
OBS has been a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization in existence since April of 2002.
Our mission is to love Jesus Christ the High Priest. We fulfill our mission by manifesting our love for Christ in serving each priest individually. We focus on each priest's unique needs and loving him unconditionally.
OBS is funded by individual donations. We charge no fees for our assistance to priests.
All of the aid that we provide priests evolves as each situation dictates the type of assistance needed given the resources available

The priests and staff of Opus Bono are always working to provide better services to Catholic priests.
