FAQ
 
1) How will my donation make a difference?

Your donation will help to provide for the growing number of priests who are eligible for retirement in the future. Your gift ensures they continue to live humbly and with dignity.
 
2) How does a priest retire?

In the year of their 70th birthday priests are eligible to apply for retirement. Priests can request to continue to serve actively in a parish community or ministry work beyond 70 and many choose to do so. Even in retirement, many priests are active in parishes and ministries throughout the Archdiocese.
 
3) Where does my gift go?

Your generous gifts made to the Priest Retirement Fund go directly to the Priest Pension Plan where they are invested and held in a trust account. The pension plan provides for the monthly pension and medical benefits of our currently retired priests and helps to fund the future retirement of our active priests.
 
4) What are other ways that I can support our priests?
 
• Pray for our priests.
• Make an in honor/in memoriam gift for a specific priest (we will inform the priest or their families).
• Make a charitable distribution from your financial portfolio.
• Consider remembering the Priest Retirement Fund in your estate planning.
