Letter to the Editor from Washington, D.C.: Gratitude For Donations
Published: May 18, 2006
To the Editor:
We extend our heartfelt thanks to all who have shared in the care of our elderly Religious through contributions to the annual Retirement Fund for Religious Appeal. The $245,327.48 contributed by the people of the Archdiocese of Atlanta—an almost five percent increase over 2004 giving of $234,380.25—is a great help to senior Religious throughout the United States. Ninety-four cents of every dollar contributed goes directly to religious institutes, and you are remembered daily in the prayers of the more than 38,000 senior Religious who benefit from your generosity.
Sister Andree Fries, Executive Director, National Religious Retirement Office, Washington, D.C.
