Retirement Fund for Religious Collection (Diocese of Erie)
December 12 - December 13
The Retirement Fund for Religious helps retired sisters and brothers with their retirement expenses. Many elder religious worked for years for small stipends, leaving a large gap in retirement savings. At the same time, fewer religious are able to serve in compensated ministry. Like many Americans, religious communities face the monumental challenge of funding eldercare.
During the weekend of December 12-13, the churches in the Diocese of Erie will be taking up a collection to support this fund. Donations can also be made online at supportthesisters.org during the entire month of December.
