This year, the Syracuse Diocese will participate in the annual Retirement Fund for Religious collection sponsored by the National Religious Retirement Office of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

The funds raised in this annual collection are distributed, based on need, to religious communities of men and women to assist them in caring for their elderly, frail and retired members. Most religious communities today have far more retired members than those serving in active remunerative ministry, and their financial needs are great.

The collection will be held on the weekend of December 4th-5th.

Please be as generous as you are able. Every gift is important and deeply appreciated. Envelopes are available in the back of Church.
