ST. JOHN PAUL II FOUNDATION

The St. John Paul II Foundation is a national Catholic apostolate proclaiming the good news about life and family through education and formation. We pursue our mission through our three hallmark initiatives:

Our passionate commitment to pursuing our mission from the heart of the Church and our steadfast commitment to genuine collaboration allow us to successfully educate, inspire, and empower medical professionals, clergy, and spouses nationwide.

It is our distinct honor to collaborate closely with dioceses, hospitals, and universities in local communities across the nation. With unparalleled commitment to excellence and prayerful perseverance, together with our dedicated partners and generous supporters, we work for the most noble of causes: Life and Family.

“Only a re-evangelization can assure the growth of a clear and deep faith… Do not be afraid! Open, indeed, open wide the doors to Christ!” — St. John Paul II

Testimonials

We read somewhere that when we give, we cooperate with God in not only our own redemption, but in the redemption of others.  As good stewards of the gifts God has given us we choose to give to the Foundation because its work is both formative and redemptive and we feel that our financial gifts are well managed by thoughtful and purposeful leadership. –Christi and Dean Quinn, Founders’ Circle Members

Working full-time in a wing of the 'field hospital' of the Church, it’s always a joy for me to talk to the clergy who are serving on the front lines of the spiritual battlefield, providing pastoral first aid to the individuals and families they serve. I am grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with the Shepherd's Heart program to provide valuable formation opportunities for my brother priests and deacons, as we share in the Church’s mission to speak the truth in love. –Fr. Philip G. Bochanski, Executive Director Courage International

Shepherd’s Heart helps us to preach the Gospel of life and Gospel of the family as good news that sets us free. Our people need to receive this teaching from their pastors who are called to be watchmen and true pastors who help form schools of love in the family. –Reverend Victor Perez

I think every married couple should attend one of these events once a year, it's a great way to renew your love with your spouse! –San Francisco attendee

This is our second year attending Together in Holiness…We love coming because it reminds us to protect the sanctity of our marriage. It keeps us accountable to live out our vocation to not only one another but to God too! –Houston attendee

We had an incredible day at the Together in Holiness conference. With confession, adoration, Mass, and the wonderful, beneficial talks we heard, it really bolstered our married life. We had fun and enjoyed our time together. The benefits we received far outweighed the time we spent at the conference. –San Antonio attendee

I hope the St. John Paul II Foundation continues to grow as we enter this generation where family values deteriorate. We need more conferences like these. We really enjoyed it and I look forward to inviting our friends and family for the next one. –Orlando attendee

I am pleased to welcome this marriage initiative into the archdiocese. My hope is that spouses from across the archdiocese will be blessed and strengthened in their noble vocation by participating in this event. –His Eminence, Daniel Cardinal DiNardo, Archbishop of Galveston-Houston

Although I’m not a practicing medical professional, it was helpful from a personal and spiritual standpoint to hear the great points discussed in the conference for family interests and pro-life involvement at church. –Nashville attendee

Well done. This is my first Catholic conference and I find the speakers, material, and expertise to be better than most if not all the medical conferences I have attended…certainly on ethics and moral issues. –San Antonio attendee

Excellent conference! The speakers were phenomenal; they presented the material very well and they were very knowledgeable. –Nashville participating physician

It’s been a pleasure and blessing to work with the Converging Roads team from the St. John Paul II Foundation. They make it easy to have an incredible conference that meets the needs of physicians, nurses, and healthcare professionals. The conferences are practical, accessible, and inspiring. Converging Roads helps us grow as a local chapter of the CMA. –Dr. Carla Falco

In society today we need medical professionals who live the faith, who know the beauty of the faith, and carry it out in the care of their patients. I encourage all involved to attend this inspiring conference. –His Eminence, Daniel Cardinal DiNardo, Archbishop of Galveston-Houston

The need to better equip health care professionals to realize the highest ethical and medical standards of their profession is particularly necessary today. This is especially true in our rapidly changing culture. The topics and speakers of this conference are sure to inspire and embolden you as you give witness to the dignity of human life in the health care profession. –His Excellency, Steven J. Lopes Bishop, Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter

In giving of our time, talent, and treasure to the St. John Paul II Foundation, we receive more than we give. –Janet and Will Cravens, Founders' Circle Members

The St. John Paul II Foundation will heed the call of their patron to make use of a 'new evangelization – new in its ardor, methods, and expression,' as they cultivate a culture that respects life and strengthens marriages and families. I believe the educational initiatives of the Foundation have much to offer local churches today. –Most Reverend José H. Gomez, Archbishop of Los Angeles

There is a distinct need for an apostolate rooted in the new evangelization that can bring hope in the face of family brokenness and clarity in the face of moral confusion. –Arland K. Nichols, Founding President
