Annual Retired Priests Collection
The Retired Priests’ Collection is for the priests of the Archdiocese of Washington. This Collection is not to be confused with the second collection for retired religious. This is the first time a collection has been taken for Retired Priests.
There is currently a shortfall in funding for priests’ retirement, and the Archdiocese is working diligently to address this shortfall through such efforts as this special collection. Priests do contribute to their own retirement through 403 B and Social Security, but please keep in mind that their salaries are modest.
Our archdiocesan priests have been there for you and your families, please be there for them to assist in the dignity of their retirement and to honor their lives of service.
You may contribute to the Retired Priests’ Collection in the following ways:
- You may have received envelopes mailed directly to your home. If not, please contact us by email or send a check payable to "Archdiocese of Washington" to Office of Development, Archdiocese of Washington, PO Box, Washington, DC 20017-0260.
- You may remember the Retirement Fund in your will when making estate plans.
- You may also visit this secure online form to donate online via credit card.
Thank you for your consideration and generosity.
