Easter Sunday Special Collection


A special collection will be held on Easter to provide for the health and retirement needs of our priests, who have dedicated their lives to serving Christ and his Church, and to help the diocese respond to emergency needs. Seventy-five percent of the money donated will go towards health and pension benefits for diocesan priests, with the remaining 25% set aside to address emergency needs. 

This collection is a vital means of support for our retired priests, so we hope you will consider giving, even though gathering together to celebrate Easter Sunday Mass may not be possible this year. You may Donate online here.

If you prefer to send a check, please direct it to:
Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland

Portland, ME 04103

Thank you for your generosity.
