FATHER’S DAY SPECIAL COLLECTION FOR PRIESTS JUNE 18th & 19th
Beginning at age 65, priests of the Diocese of Biloxi who do not belong to a Religious Order are provided with a modest pension. The funds for this pension come from an endowment to which parishes pay a yearly assessment. There is also a small supplement to the pension from the Catholic Sharing Appeal. These pension/retirement income sources have not kept pace with inflation. Rather than asking parishes to contribute more to the endowment, the Diocese has opted to have a direct appeal on Father’s Day. The annual second collection will supplement the pension given to diocesan priests of retirement age. Please give generously to the Father’s Day Special Collection for the well deserving priests of the Diocese of Biloxi.
