Clergy Support Foundation: caring for those who cared
|Catholic Diocese of Parramatta Clergy Support Foundation.|
The Diocese of Parramatta Clergy Support Foundation provides assistance to Diocesan priests who have retired or who are in ill-health.
The support the Foundation provides can include financial assistance for the provision of welfare, maintenance, the necessities of life and even relief from poverty.
Supporting the Clergy Support Foundation allows us to acknowledge the priests who have ministered throughout our Diocese over a considerable number of years, but who are now in need of our assistance.
In short, it is the opportunity to support the care of those who cared for us.
There are 27 Parramatta clergy who are currently retired – two bishops, 23 priests and two deacons – all of whom are grateful for the support the people of the Diocese have provided to them by making a donation to the Foundation.
While the Diocese is blessed to have many clergy aged over 65 still active in their Diocesan ministry, it is also true that in the near future, many of these will need our support.
You can show your support for these priests by making a donation at any time to the Clergy Support Foundation, or by leaving a bequest to the Foundation. There is also an opportunity to contribute through the Bishop’s Annual Father’s Day Appeal for Retired and Sick Priests, held throughout our parishes in September each year.
All donations of $2 and more are fully Tax deductible.
