According to the NFPC Constitution, all arch/diocesan priests’ councils representing the priests of the local church are members of the NFPC.
A council which supports NFPC financially is considered an active member council. A council which does not is considered an inactive member council. Just as in local parishes where a proportionately small number of dedicated members contribute financially, so does NFPC rely on financial support from its active members to be able to continue to serve the entire U.S. presbyterate.*
Membership in NFPC is not a ‘goods or services’ consumeristic approach. Active membership in NFPC supports the overall mission of the organization and keeps the services and connection offered by NFPC alive and effective.
Active membership in NFPC is an investment in the strengthening of the Catholic presbyterate in the United States.
