Priests Retirement Fund Collection: May 14-15
The weekend of May 14th & 15th we will hold a special
collection for the Diocesan Priests’ Retirement Fund. This
fund is becoming vital as more and more of our priests
reach the age of retirement. Your donation will be used to
support the many fine priests who have dedicated their
lives to service of the faithful of Delaware and Maryland’s
Eastern Shore. You can meet four of our retired priests;
Fr. Raymond Forester, Msgr. Daniel McGlynn, Fr. Leonard
Kempski and Fr. Edward Stork, and learn about their
ministry on a short video posted on the diocesan website,
cdow.org. Please be as generous as possible.
