Supporting Priests in Retirement

Why should we support the Priests Retirement Fund?

Our priests have dedicated their lives to serving others. They have been with us and those we love for many of life’s most precious moments, from birth to death, showing us the love and compassion of God. They have baptized us, taught us, preached the Gospel to us, and led our parish communities. They have heard our sins, blessed us with absolution, and brought us the Eucharistic gift of Christ Himself. They have witnessed our weddings, comforted us in illness, officiated our funerals, and always been there, in both our times of distress and our moments of celebration. In their retirement years, these men of God need and deserve our help.

It will be a wonderful opportunity for attendees to mingle and socialize prior to the Lunch. Lunch will start at 12 noon. Honorees for 2021 are Fr. James MacDonald and Fr. Kieran McCormick.

September 18 – 19:  Special Collection in parishes.
October 22:  In-person Priests Retirement Luncheon

The Priests Retirement Luncheon is one of the highlights of the year and is integral to the Archdiocese’s ability to care for our retired Priests. Over $2,200,000 has been raised since the Luncheon began in 2011. Without this tremendous support, our retired Priests would not receive the care they need and deserve. On behalf of everyone committed to caring for our retired Priests, we offer our most sincere thanks for your support.

For information on the Luncheon and/or the Special Collection,
