Parishes in the Archdiocese of Louisville donated $70,000 to the 2022 Retirement Fund for Religious collection.
To date, the archdiocese has collected a total of $5,172,355.69 to help religious communities care for senior members, according to a letter from the National Religious Retirement Office.
Nearly 30,000 senior religious benefit from the annual collection. In addition to helping religious communities provide for day-to-day eldercare needs, proceeds from the Retirement Fund for Religious collection also “underwrite programming and education that promote long-term retirement planning.”
“These resources focus on helping communities to reduce costs, enhance eldercare and identity additional sources of income,” the letter said.
