Fraternity and support celebrated at retired priests’ lunch
Eleven of the Archdiocese’s retired priests attended a special lunch at the Archbishop’s House on Friday, November 2.
The retired priests’ lunch has become an annual event.
Manager of the Clergy Retirement Foundation Kevin Croker described it as a very friendly and supportive get-together.
“It brings them all together in a fraternal, sharing environment,” he said.
“It also thanks them for the wonderful, supportive role they play in supporting their brother priests, especially with the supply of masses,” he said.
The lunch was preceded by a Mass that was concelebrated by the priests and Archbishop Christopher Prowse in the Chapel at the Archbishop’s House.
A number of retired priests were unable to attend due to unavailability, illness or distance to travel.
