Religious say thanks
To the people of the Archdiocese of New Orleans: In the name of the religious women and men of the Archdiocese of New Orleans, I want to convey our deep gratitude to you for your generosity in the 2018 collection for the National Religious Retirement Fund.
This year the annual collection totaled $260,575.81, a most generous response from the people of God in our archdiocese and a manifestation of their love and appreciation of the ministry of religious.
Each March, we celebrate the Feast of St. Joseph, the man who provided sustenance, shelter and security for Jesus and Mary. St. Joseph holds a special place of honor in the hearts and homes of religious. We trust that through his intercession, provision will be made for our needs. Thank you for being the heart and hands of St. Joseph for us today.
Know that we religious hold in our prayers your needs and the needs of those you serve.
Gratefully in Christ,
SISTER ELIZABETH M. FITZPATRICK, O.Carm. Executive Director Executive Director of Religious
Archdiocese of New Orleans
