In the footsteps of St. John Paul II

Join us in Poland! We go on pilgrimage to the places where the young Karol Wojtyla grew up and lived, to get to know his country, his history and his deep-rooted faith in Jesus Christ.

Our mission: to help in the formation of priests, to spread their good name and to pray for vocations.

We believe that it is possible to improve people's daily lives through the integral formation of young men with a vocation to serve through the priesthood. For this reason CARF, thanks to its benefactors, contributes financially so that priests and seminarians around the world receive a solid academic, theological, human and spiritual preparation.

Priests, God's smile on earth.

Put a face to your donation. Help us form diocesan and religious priests.

"If there were no priests, there would be no Church. Let no vocation be lost for lack of resources!"

CARF organizes, in collaboration with specialists in religious tourism, pilgrimages to the main sites of Christianity: the Holy Land, Rome, Lourdes, Fatima and much more.

Holy Mass

It is necessary to be united to the Lord. The Holy Mass is the center of the life of the Church and of every Christian, and that is why we share with you the daily celebration from the Pontifical Basilica of St. Michael in Madrid.

Pray for priests

Although they don't ask for it, they need your prayers to comfort them and to continue their mission. Let them know through prayer that they are counting on you and that they are not alone.
