"Millions of people have given evidence of their admi- ration and affection for these religious through their dona- tions to the Fund," continued Sister Hudon. "Many are also recognizing that religious congregations financed their works of mercy at the price of their own ability to care for their elderly and continue their ministry." The annual report indicat- ed that religious congrega- tions are currently meeting over half (57 percent) of the annual cost of caring for their retired members. Social Secu- rity and retirement fund grants supply another 25 per- cent. That leaves a gap of 18 percent. Religious congregations each year are asked far infor- mation about their retirement assets and for census data on their members. Based on such reports, ' every religions Com- munity with an unfunded re- tirement liability is eligible for a basic grant. Some communities ch6ose to decline grants so that con- gregations with greater needs may receive more money. Those who declined grants in the current year include the Indiana congregations of Our lady Of Victory Missionary Sisters in Huntington, Sisters Adorers of the Precious Blood in Lafayette, and the Dis- calced Carmelite Monastery in Terre Haute. In addition to the Daugh- ters of Charity in Evansville and the Benedictines in Fer- dinand, other communities in Indiana which were awarded grants include the following:. Benedictine Sisters, Beech Groove, $28,548.42; Sisters of St. Francis of the III Order, Oldenburg, $153,566.11; Sis- ters of Providence, St. Mary- of-the-Woods, $301,512.09; and the Benedictine Fathers, St. Meinrad, $30,811.16.
