Retirment2

The Retirement Fund for Religious is sponsored by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Conference of Major Superiors of Men, Council of Major Superiors of Women Religious and Leadership Conference of Women Religious. This appeal, is coordinated by the National Religious Retirement Office (NRRO), and proceeds help hundreds of U.S. religious communities to care for aging members. Some 30,000 senior Catholic sisters, brothers and religious order priests benefit. Catholic bishops of the United States initiated the Retirement Fund for Religious in 1988 to help address the profound lack of retirement savings among U.S. religious communities. Since the collection’s launch, U.S. Catholics have donated $872 million to the annual appeal. Despite this generosity, many congregations still struggle to provide for aging members. Most older religious served for low wages that did not include retirement benefits. Today, numerous communities face a critical shortage in retirement savings. Moreover, retired religious now outnumber wage-earning members, resulting in declining income and a rising cost of care. Donations to the Retirement Fund for Religious enable our office to provide financial assistance for an array of direct needs …They also underwrite education and resources that help religious communities stretch retirement dollars and plan for the future.
