On Dec. 10-11, the Diocese of Sacramento will hold the annual Retirement Fund for Religious collection in parishes throughout the diocese.
Last year, parishioners of the diocese donated $150,203.88 to the collection. In 2022, the New Clairvaux Abbey received a total of $54,476.83 in financial support made possible by the Retirement Fund for Religious.
About the upcoming collection, NRRO Executive Director Sister Stephanie Still, a member of the Sisters of the Presentation of San Francisco, said, “The care of our aging religious presents an enormous financial responsibility. It is our privilege to care for those who gave a lifetime of tireless service, and I feel we are deeply blessed by all the U.S. Catholic donors who have steadfastly contributed to this fund.”
