Over four years ago the Archdiocese embarked on the Clergy Support Fund Campaign to raise much needed funds to support the on-going care and support of our sick and retired clergy.
The campaign raised £3.7 million from 3,000 gifts and pledges, all in support of the elderly and infirm priests of Southwark who have dedicated their lives to the Church. It was a great display of generosity for which we are incredibly grateful. We also want to thank our parish priests, for having supported the campaign in their parishes and enabling people to learn about, and support, the welfare of our clergy in their retirement.
This Christmas we have sent supporters of this fund a Christmas newsletter, with a cover letter from Archbishop John Wilson, thanking them for their generosity of heart. We would like to ensure all those who donated to this fund, and supported it through their prayers and as volunteers, are made aware of the difference their generosity has made. See below for a copy of the newsletter.
