Pension Advocacy

CORPUS Pension Advocacy

The overarching goal of the Resigned Priest Pension Advocacy Campaign is to insure that every Roman Catholic Diocese in the United States provides all priests, active and resigned a retirement pension commensurate with their years of service to the Church as a matter of right and justice. Local goals should be guided by the policy and conditions extant in each particular diocese with the ultimate end of securing pension inclusion for all priests. It should be noted that the process of securing a just pension for all priests in your diocese will depend on a number of variables; the most important being the disposition of the bishop to this issue. It will take perseverance and organization sometimes even years to achieve favorable results. Your goals should be calculated to take small steps in a focused campaign in concert with other resigned priests, active priests and laity who support the cause.
