The Need

You are here

Today more than ever, the need to provide for the physical and mental well-being of our priests is vitally important.

The responsibilities, pressures, and challenges facing today’s priests in the Archdiocese of Boston are dramatically different than they were even a decade ago. Many priests are being asked to fulfill roles beyond their sacramental duties at multiple parishes, and an increasing number of priests are reaching senior status with medical costs on the rise.

The goal of the Clergy Health and Retirement Trust is to continue providing care at the current level of benefits, now and in the future. This is made possible only through the generosity of people like you who care for your priests and want to ensure that they remain healthy and safe, just as we would want for any of our own family members.
