Parishioners in diocese collect nearly $200,000 for Retirement Fund for Religious

Holy Infant collected about $5,000.

Parishioners from the Diocese of Raleigh gave more than $175,000 in support of the 2018 Retirement Fund for Religious collection. Holy Infant contributed about $5,000 to the fund last year.

In a letter to Bishop Zarama, the executive director of the Presentation Sisters of the Blessed Virgin Mary said proceeds from the collection offer support for medications, nursing care and other day-to-day needs for older members of religious communities.

Roughly 94 percent of donations to the Retirement Fund for Religious directly aid senior religious and their communities. The fund has distributed $803 million to assist with the direct care needs of senior religious since 1989.
