Add a Priest
The priest of your choice will be added with each sponsorship.
When submitting a priest's name, please list first, middle, and last name if possible, and any Religious Order affiliation.
In thanks for your generosity, you will receive a Mary, Mother of Priests prayer card. Please remember to pray for our sponsored priests! You may also order an icon along with your sponsorship.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does plaque sponsorship work?
Your tax-deductible donation of $180 will give you the ability to submit a priest's name to be added to the Chapel wall.
Can I submit the name of a priest who is deceased?
Yes. We encourage in-memoriam sponsorships, as well as sponsorships for living priests.
What if I can't make a payment of $180 right now?
Can I make a donation of some other amount?
Yes. We sincerely appreciate donations of all sizes. Take a look at our "Drop In The Bucket" Campaign at the bottom of this page.
Are there other sponsorship opportunities?
Yes! Please prayerfully consider sponsoring one of the other items below. We want this Chapel to be a place of beauty and contemplation, and your generosity will help make it so.
What if more than one person wants to sponsor the same priest? Repeat names wouldn't add up to 1000 priests.
If a repeat name is submitted, it will be listed with a saintly patron. For instance, if two people want to sponsor Fr. Joe Smith, his plaques might look like this:
That way, 1000 priests' names will still be on our wall, to inspire the men who will pray daily in the Chapel.
If I submit a repeat name, can I choose the saintly patron?
You may suggest a saintly patron, but for the sake of simplicity, the Confraternity will have the final say on which saintly patron will be used.
Drop In The Bucket Campaign
Guadalupe Men's Vocation Discernment House was badly damaged by water from a burst pipe. Any donation will help to restore the house for occupancy. All benefactors, no matter the size of the donation, will be remembered in the Dedication Mass of the Chapel on December 12, 2023.
