The Shepherds' Trust


The Shepherds’ Trust has a mission to provide, comfort and care for those who have steadfastly cared for us – our retired priests.  As parishioners, we have our own memories of a Catholic priest who made a positive, meaningful and lasting impact in our lives.

Religious order priests such as our own Holy Cross Fathers &  Spiritans have faithfully served parish communities like Holy Name Parish for many years.  The Shepherds` Trust recognizes their faithfulness, their many years of service to us, and the strong ties we have to them by ensuring that funds collected in parishes served by religious order priests, be given to those orders as a contribution towards the retirement of our priests.

Each year, thousands of people contribute to the Shepherds’ Trust.  The collection will take place in all parishes in the Archdiocese on November 16th & 17th.  Envelopes attached to this weekends bulletin.

We want our priests to retire safely and with dignity.  The Shepherds’ Trust allows us to help achieve this goal.

Your generosity is deeply appreciated.
