Thank You Sisters!

On a snowy February morning, six members of the Bernardine Franciscans of Reading, Pennsylvania, donned their best smiles and were photographed for the 2019 Retirement Fund for Religious (RFR) campaign materials.

Sister Charlene Herinckx, superior general of the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon, understands that each religious community’s retirement circumstances are unique. As a volunteer consultant for the National Religious Retirement Office (NRRO) Planning and Implementation Assistance program, she tries to help communities find strategies that are right for them.

Recently, the National Catholic Development Conference (NCDC) recognized the National Religious Retirement Office (NRRO) with an award for distinguished service.

In June, the National Religious Retirement Office (NRRO) distributed $25 million to 360 religious communities to aid in the care of senior members.

On Thursday, May 10, roughly 40 women and men religious from five (arch)dioceses gathered to learn more about the National Religious Retirement Office (NRRO).
