Clergy Family Initiative

Clergy Family Initiative Endowment Fund

Giving to the Clergy Family Initiative Endowment Fund is an opportunity to express our thankfulness to our Clergy who have dedicated their lives in service to God and His Church. This is a very special way, especially for our PK's - Priest Kids - to honor their parents by ensuring that future Priests and their families will be spared from severe financial hardship.

For most people, the greatest financial gift we are able to give is what we leave behind when we fall asleep in the Lord. Through a charitable gift, you can have a significant positive effect on our Clergy, the Clergy families, and our Church, as well as those people whose lives are changed because of them. The impact of your gift will be felt for years and generations to come.

It is our heartfelt prayer that, as Parish Lay Leaders, you will learn more about the ministry of your Priest, and his personal challenges, and the need to grow as co-workers in sharing the Ministry of Christ.


It has been shown that this program benefits the financial health and well-being of the priest and his family, and by extension, their parishes and parishioners."
