Sponsored by the Washington-based National Religious Retirement Office, the annual collection is taken up to both honor and financially support the thousands of retired Catholic sisters, brothers and religious order priests who have selflessly served for decades without significant financial compensation.

Men and women religious are feeling the impact of escalating health-care costs, and numerous U.S. religious communities face a substantial gap between their elderly members’ needs and the financial resources available for their care. Many religious orders currently experience insufficient retirement savings.

In 2022, Trenton faithful contributed $258,017.80 to the collection. The 2022 appeal demonstrated Catholics’ tremendous generosity by raising $27.6 million. These funds from the Retirement Fund for Religious collection provided financial assistance for retirement needs for 297 U.S. religious communities.
