As you know each year we have a collection throughout the Diocese on Christmas for the Retired Priest Fund. Both of us are on the Retired Priest Board and we recently got a report on this past December's collection. As of now, the total collected throughout the Diocese was $135.000.00. Of that total you here at St. Mary's contributed $41,000.00. With support like this we may be around a long time!! Thanks for your generosity.
