Parishes give $100,000 to Retirement Fund for Religious

Parishes in the Archdiocese of Louisville donated $100,000 to the 2019 Retirement Fund for Religious collection, which was held Dec. 7-8.
According to a letter from the National Religious Retirement Office, since the collection was initiated in 1988, the archdiocese has collected a total of $4,937,855.69 to help religious communities care for senior members. Approximately 32,000 senior religious benefit from the annual collection.

In addition to helping religious communities provide for the day-to-day needs of senior members, proceeds from the collection also “underwrite programming and education that promote long-term retirement planning,” the letter said.
