Retirement Fund for Religious

Support elderly religious. A parishioner writes, “As a Catholic school student from grades K-12, I was formed to be the person I am by many religious brothers and sisters, and I am forever grateful.” Show your appreciation for the senior Catholic sisters, brothers and religious order priests who made a positive difference in so many lives. Please give generously to the next week’s collection for the Retirement Fund for Religious.

 Fondo Para la Jubilación de Religiosos

Apoye a los religiosos ancianos. Uno de los fieles escribe: “Como estudiante católico entre los grados K-12, fui formado para ser la persona que soy por muchos hermanas y hermanos religiosos, y estaré agradecido para siempre”. Muestre su agradecimiento a las hermanas, hermanos y sacerdotes de órdenes religiosas quienes marcaron la diferencia en tantas vidas. Sea generoso en su donativo a la colecta de la semana próxima para el Fondo para la Jubilación de Religiosos.
