Celebrate our retired priests at the St. John Vianney Luncheon on Sept. 29

August 17, 2017

The seventh annual St. John Vianney Luncheon honoring retired priests of the archdiocese and raising funds for their support will be held Sept. 29 at St. Mary’s Cathedral.

The funds that are raised through the luncheon help to cover retired priests’ unreimbursed medical expenses, including assisted living and skilled nursing care. Since the first luncheon in 2011, more than $1.5 million has been raised.

“In addition to the critical monetary support, this luncheon also provides an opportunity to show gratitude to these men for their unyielding devotion to those they serve,” said Auxiliary Bishop William J. Justice.

“Take a few minutes and think about the priests you’ve known – pastors and their associates, teachers and family friends” said archdiocesan vicar for clergy Father Raymund Reyes. “These men have occupied very special roles in all of our lives. They have been present for the most sacred moments of life and have always been there in times of need.

“As they age now in retirement, I hope you will join me in supporting them as they have supported us,” Father Reyes said. “Please find time in your schedule for this annual luncheon. If you haven’t attended in the past, I encourage you to join us. You’ll find it’s time well spent with our retired men.”

Please attend the luncheon or donate directly to the Priests’ Retirement Fund. You may donate online at sfarch.org/PRFLunch or mail your gift to: Archdiocese of San Francisco, Priests Retirement Fund, One Peter Yorke Way, San Francisco 94109.
