Father’s Day Special Collection for Diocesan Priests’ Care & Support

On Father’s Day June 15-16, 2019, there will be a special collection to care for our infirm and retired priests. The Fund for Diocesan Infirmed and Elderly Priests is a special way for the people of the Diocese of Joliet to express their concern for the welfare of those who have dedicated their lives in service to our pastoral care. The money in this fund goes toward priests who need help with extraordinary medical expenses or suffer a catastrophic illness. It also provides for the care of the St. John Vianney Villa, home to several retired priests in the Diocese of Joliet.
