Collection for religious retirement Nov. 7-8

The diocesan Retirement Fund for Religious collection, coordinated by the National Religious Retirement Office, will be held Nov. 7-8. The collection helps religious communities support older members and benefits nearly 30,000 senior religious. 

In 2019, 72 percent of the religious communities providing data to the NRRO had a median age of 70 or higher. The retirement collection was started by U.S. bishops in 1988 to address the need for retirement funding for religious communities. The yearly collection provides financial support to hundreds of religious communities for retirement expenses or investment for the future. Since the first year, nearly $899 million has been donated.

Last year, the diocese donated $419,678 to the $26.2 million that was raised nationwide.
