Next week (4/24 & 25) our Special Collection will be for the Diocesan Priest Retirement Fund. This is a different collection from the Religious Retirement Fund that is done each December. In concert with next weekend’s Good Shepherd Sunday, we are asked to prayerfully consider giving generously to this collection that will directly support our priests who are in their retirement years. They have given their lives shepherding our communities, and we pray that they are adequately cared for, in this next chapter of their lives. Please be generous! You can donate online: and also watch a short 2-minute video here:
