ARCHDIOCESAN NEWS
 
AGED AND INFIRM CLERGY FUND [AICF]
A comprehensive review of archdiocesan finances is underway, including a revision of income and expenditure, consolidation of capital funds, reviewing holdings of stocks and shares and improving revenue streams. One area identified as requiring immediate attention and long-term stabilisation is AICF which seeks to supplement basic State provision for clergy once they retire from active ministry, which for most is at age 75 !  Without a steady flow of new vocations  fewer men are available for service in our exisiting parishes and we all know the extra strain this places on aging clergy due to increased work-loads and responsibilities for multiple parishes. At present we have to care for around 25 retired and infirm clergy who require long-term support from AICF. To this end it has been agreed to try and increase funds by holding a special second collection for AICF after week-end Masses over 11/12 June.
