Ministry to Those who Struggle with Pornography

Priests have a unique opportunity to minister to those who struggle with pornography use or addiction since the confessional is a true sanctuary: a safe, sacred place to find healing.

The following suggestions are meant to help the priest in this special ministry. Click the link to read more from Fr David Songy, OFM Cap., S.T.D, Psy.D., president of Saint Luke Institute.
