Support retired religious through the RFR collection

By

Dear Friends in Christ,

On the weekend of Dec. 2-3, our parishes will be conducting the annual collection for the Retirement Fund for Religious (RFR). I urge you to offer this appeal your prayerful and vocal support. Your efforts are vital to its success.

In his letter to consecrated religious marking the beginning of the year of Consecrated Life, Pope Francis outlines various aims for the celebrations, the first of which is “to look to the past with gratitude.” In this spirit, I ask for your heartfelt support of the annual collection for the Retirement Fund for Religious (RFR.) The RFR furnishes immediate financial assistance for the day to day care of aging religious and helps their communities implement long-term retirement strategies. Read more »
