RETIRED DIOCESE PRIESTS COLLECTION SEPTEMBER 10-11:
On both ordinary and extraordinary days, our priests have been there for us…. at baptisms, weddings, First Communion and Confirmation, at times of sickness and sorrow…dedicating their lives to bring us closer to Christ. Now it is our turn to be there for them during their retirement years through a gift to the Retired Diocesan Priests Collection. All funds will be used only for long-term nursing care, Medicare supplemental insurance and prescription medications. Show your appreciation with a generous gift next weekend September 10-11.
Thank you so much!
Note: Our diocesan priests do not receive any funding from the Retirement Fund for Religious collection which is held in December.
