Retirement Fund for Religious collection this weekend
This weekend, December 12 – 13, the Diocese of Buffalo is participating in and encouraging support of the national Retirement Fund for the Religious Appeal. Proceeds from this annual appeal are used to assist in the health care and maintenance expenses of retired religious order nuns, brothers and priests. These retired religious women and men typically served in education, health care or social services roles. In their years of sacrificing and serving others, they did not provide for themselves. Members of religious congregations, many in the twilight of their years, do not receive financial support, health care or retirement benefits from the Diocese of Buffalo.
Support for the Retirement Fund for the Religious can be made at www.shareinthecare.org or with a check payable to the “Retirement Fund for the Religious” mailed to 795 Main Street, Buffalo, NY 14203.
