Diocesan Priests' Retirement and Benefits Fund

September 30 is the deadline for our Parish to meet our commitment to the Charlotte Diocese Priests' Retirement and Benefits Fund.  If you have not yet contributed to this fund or you feel that you may be able to add to your contribution, please prayerfully consider doing so.  We need to raise more than $13,000.00 to meet our goal by the September 30 deadline.  When you contribute to this fund, 100% of your contribution remains in our Diocese and is applied to the stated purpose.  Nothing is redirected to other purposes by our Parish, the Diocese, the USCCB, or the Vatican.  You can send in your contribution to the Parish Office by mail or just drop it off during the week.  Or you can drop it in the collection plate at any Mass before September 30.  Mark it for the Priests' Retirement Fund or use one of the special envelopes which are available for that purpose at the Masses.  You can also click on www.stehc.org/online to make a contribution.  Thank you for helping your Parish meet its commitment.
