Priests’ Retirement fund Special Collection 25 & 26 May 2019
The Aged & Infirm Clergy Fund of the Archdiocese provides the living costs and housing for our 24 retired priests. The special collections are one of the main sources of income for the fund.  In 2018, income generated from the special collections, donations and legacies was around £290,000, which is almost £80,000 less than monies required to support our retired clergy.  In order to continue to pay allowances to the next generation of Priests as they retire, we need to raise twice as much as we did in 2018.  Please do consider what you can give to this collection and bring your donations on weekend of 25/26th May 2019.  Additionally, if you are a tax payer please complete a Gift Aid envelope with your name and address details as this allows us to claim additional revenues. Please pray for our retired priests, who have served us well and be as generous as you can. Thank you for your generosity.
