On the Sunday following Fathers’ Day, that is next week-end, we are invited to offer support for our retired priests.
There are over 80 retired priests living in Sydney. Our former pastor, Fr Peter Morrissey is one of those priests.
In retirement most elderly priests are living alone because their families and close friends are also elderly or deceased. They have the aged care pension but they need a place to live as well as adequate health care or, in some cases, nursing care. The truth is that they need some extra financial assistance so that they can live out their final years with some dignity.
Any help you can give is greatly appreciated. Envelopes are on the seats.
