Dear Sisters and Brothers in the Diocese of Peterborough,
On behalf of the retired priests of the Diocese of Peterborough, I thank you for your ongoing
generosity to our Priest Benefit Fund. This fund is the principal way that we care for priests
who have retired from pastoral assignment either because of age or health concerns. Our
senior priests served with dedication for many years and often still substitute in parishes when
their health permits. They remain an important part of our Catholic community and your
concern for them reflects both this fact and your appreciation for their priestly service.
Our Annual Parish Appeal for the Priest Benefit Fund will take place on Sunday, June 12 th, and
additionally, donations are accepted at parishes or online (www.peterboroughdiocese.org) any
time of the year. Knowing that these are financially challenging times for many people, we are
grateful for any contribution you can make to this appeal, which is so important to the life of
the Church in the Diocese of Peterborough. On behalf of all our priests – retired, planning for
retirement, or still years away from it – I offer you our sincere thanks and our prayers.
Yours in Christ,
†Most Reverend Daniel J. Miehm
Bishop of Peterborough
