Priests' Retirement Fund
PRIESTS’ RETIREMENT FUND - ANNUAL APPEAL:
The Annual Appeal, in support of the Priest’s Retirement Fund, will take place during this coming weekend of 6 Nov – 7 Nov 2021.
During their years of service to parish congregations many priests did not have the opportunity to prepare adequately for retirement. The support received for this appeal each year is a great reassurance to them that they are not forgotten.There are currently twenty retired priests in receipt of financial support, which includes funding for retirement properties, retirement grants and care home fees, amounting to over £250,000 per annum.Your support for this important collection is much appreciated by our retired priests, who continue to give great help in many parishes by offering their services as supply priests. To enhance the appeal, Gift Aid envelopes will be available allowing an additional 25p to be claimed for every £1 donated
