Where can congregations get help in planning for the future and the care of their elderly?
The National Religious Retirement Office sponsored by LCWR with the national conference of bishops and the other conferences of religious leaders, provides a variety of methods of assistance. The Retirement Fund for Religious appeal raises an average of $26 million annually. Any religious congregation that needs assistance with funding for retirement may apply for grants. Workshops, on- site peer consulting and other educational services also are offered by the National Religious Retirement Office. See www.usccb.org/nrro or call the office at 202-541-3215 for more information.
