Statement from Bishop Burbidge on Retired Priest Collection

May 19, 2018

The Collection for Retired Diocesan Priests assists us in caring for our current and future retired priests and offers a way to show gratitude for their many years of dedication and faithful service. I encourage all in the Diocese prayerfully to consider a gift to this collection and, in so doing, recognizing the profound impact our priests have had on the mission of the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Arlington. Their priestly service and witness to holiness has been a benefit for all. This collection bears witness to their dignity in retirement and our appreciation.
