Retired Priests’ Fund

Parish priests generally retire at 75 often having given 40-50 years of service to the people of the Diocese – well beyond the retirement age of most lay people.  As they live independently, retired priests support themselves and are unable to rely upon the financial support provided by a Parish. Priests receive a minimal wage during their years in active ministry, and so most only receive the basic state pension upon retirement.  The Retired Priests’ Fund seeks to help sick and retired priests with their basic living needs, providing a pension, accommodation etc… Our priests rely on what the Fund provides after devoting their lives to furthering the mission of the Church and bringing people closer to Christ.

Your donation will help sick and retired priests who have given their lives to the Church.  Please give as generously as you can to this very worthy cause.

Thank you for your support.

I would like the Diocese of Shrewsbury to treat this donation as a Gift Aid donation.  I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference.
