Our priests are often at the center of efforts that build strong support systems for all of us. In addition to their daily pastoral responsibilities, they help establish social service organizations, offer spiritual support for first responders, operate parish food pantries, and recently, in response to the pandemic, put their lives at risk to provide comfort and peace to those suffering with COVID-19.
Healthier priests build stronger communities, and the Clergy Health and Retirement Trust (CHRT) cares for the health and well-being of our active and senior priests in good standing. You can support the CHRT’s mission at Masses this weekend, September 19/20. Donations may be dropped in the collection boxes at the Outdoor Masses (please use a Clergy Health and Retirement Trust Special Collection envelope, or place your donation in an plain envelope marked “Clergy Health and Retirement Trust Collection”.) Donations may also be mailed to or dropped through the mail slot at either parish office.
