THE BISHOP'S FATHER'S DAY APPEAL


THE BISHOP'S FATHER'S DAY APPEAL

Please give generously to the Bishop’s Annual Father’s Day Appeal for Retired and Sick Clergy.


My Dear People,

On the day of his ordination, a priest lays down in a symbolic gesture to show that he offers his whole life for the Church. Our Clergy Support Foundation shows appreciation for this lifetime of service.

When Fr Ashton retires after 42 years of service at Sacred Heart Parish and 59 years as a priest, our Clergy Support Foundation will be there for him – providing accommodation, devoted practical care and guidance, health support, living essentials, transport to medical appointments and financial assistance, where needed.

Your gift helps support 20 retired priests in our Diocese. Many serve well into their 70s, caring for the spiritual life and welfare of God’s people.

The Diocese of Parramatta Clergy Support Foundation provides assistance to Diocesan priests who have retired or who are in ill-health. The support the Foundation provides can include financial assistance for the provision of welfare, maintenance, the necessities of life and even relief from poverty. Supporting the Clergy Support Foundation allows us to acknowledge priests who have ministered throughout our Diocese over a number of years, but who are now in need of our assistance.

While the Diocese is blessed to have many clergy aged over 65 still active in their Diocesan ministry, it is also true that in the near future, many of these will need our support. You can show your support for these priests by making a donation at any time to the Clergy Support Foundation, or by leaving a bequest to the Foundation. Please give generously this Father’s Day Appeal.

Thank you for generously caring for those who have cared selflessly for our faith community. Please keep our beloved priests in your prayers.

Yours sincerely in Christ,
Bishop Vincent Long OFM Conv
Bishop of Parramatta
