Welcome!

Dear Friend,

As you may know, our mission here at the Avila Foundation is to heal and restore the Church through authentic and life-giving spiritual teaching. Perhaps the most pressing way in which we have been called to accomplish this mission is through our High Calling priestly formation program.

Our High Calling program is designed to assist men discerning a call to the priesthood. We provide them with powerful formation to help them discern God’s calling and to equip them with authentic and orthodox Catholic teaching on theology and spirituality.

It is through this process that men can begin their journey to the priesthood on a foundation of an authentic encounter with God and emerge from seminary with a true reverence and spiritual foundation that will glorify God. We are currently working with 46 dioceses and have over 100 men enrolled each year!

At our October 2024 Summit, we heard from a seminarian and a vocations director who blew us away with their High Calling testimonies. 

It would mean so much to me if you would take the time to listen to these incredible stories.

2023 Summit with Fr. Chase and Drew Stanley

Were you moved by these young men and their stories?  I trust you can see why we are passionate about helping them. 

You can join us and help ensure that men discerning the priesthood are introduced to the High Calling program, provided authentic and orthodox Catholic teaching about spirituality and theology, and go on to become good and holy priests – good shepherds who truly bring about healing in the Church.

Would you consider making an online donation in whatever amount your means will allow through this secure online donation page now?

If you feel called to heal and restore the Church, we would love to have you on our team.

Thank you for considering this request today. I hope the stories of Fr. Chase and Drew were inspiring to you. Theirs are just two of hundreds that we pray become thousands in the coming years. Please join us in this fight.

Yours in Him,

Dan Burke

President and Founder, Avila Foundation
