Archdiocese raises nearly $500K for retired religious men and women

| June 7, 2016 | 0 Comments

Catholics in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis raised a final total of $491,329 for the 2015 Retirement Fund for Religious appeal.

“It is obvious that Archbishop [Bernard] Hebda, the priests and parishioners realize the seriousness of this appeal and respond to it,” said local appeal coordinator Sister Midge Breiter, a School Sister of Notre Dame, in a statement. “Your generosity reflects your loving hearts. Thank you.”

The appeal funds the care of retired religious men and women and order priests. Sister Midge plans to step down from coordinating the appeal locally after holding the role for eight years.
