The annual collection for the Retirement Fund for the Priests of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles will be taken up next weekend. This fund, which is set up as a pension plan and separate from the archdiocese, provides a pension and helps with medical costs for the retired priests who have served in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Currently, the fund provides for 145 priests who are retired. Over the next 10 years, the number of priests who will reach retirement age will number 353.

Please be generous and may our contributions be an expression of gratitude for their many years of active ministry. Special envelopes are in the pews.
