Taking the NRRO Mission on the Road

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).

Hosted by the Archdiocese of Hartford, the gathering was the brainchild of Sister Mariette Moan, a member of the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the archdiocese’s Vicar for Religious. Sister Mariette collaborated with Presentation Sister Stephanie Still, the NRRO’s executive director, to develop a program that helped participants better understand the many ways the NRRO can support retirement needs and planning.

Sister Stephanie; Marist Brother Hank Sammon, NRRO associate director for fund distribution; and Marianist Brother Bob Metzger, NRRO associate director for planning and education, provided an overview of various services and programs available to religious institutes. They gave presentations on financial assistance, retirement planning, and the educational programs offered by the NRRO. Later in the day, time was available for religious to work with individual NRRO staff.

“We are so grateful to Sister Mariette for offering us this opportunity,” said Sister Stephanie. “We hope this gathering can become a model for sharing our mission with religious across the country.”
