C 311ection for retired religious approved By JUHE ASHER NC News Service WASHINGTON (NC) -- The U.S. Catholic bishops Nov. 17 approved a proposal for an an- nual collection to help men and women Religious meet rising retirement costs. Of the 166 Ordinaries voting, 156 approved the collection, which would begin in 1988 and would be conducted for 10 years "unless the need is met before then." The retirement need, estimated at $2.5 billion, in- cludes the cost of meeting health care and living expenses of those men and women Religious now retired and what will be needed to cover retire- ment costs for those still in ac- tive ministry. The bishops also approved by 152 to 14 a second part of the proposal which calls for an ongoing public awareness pro- gram to support the appeal. A third part -- providing that any funds collected be ad- ministered and disbursed through a formula developed by the Tri-Conference Retirement Project -- was accepted by a vote of 149 to 17. Established in July 1986, the tri-conference proiect is spon- sored by the National Con- ference of Catholic Bishops, the Leadership Conference of Women Religious and the Con- terence of Major Superiors of Men. During debate on the pro- posal, many bishops spoke in full support of the measure and acknowledged the urgency of the need, but a number express- ed concern on the timing for a collection. Archbishop James A. Hickey of Washington noted that the month designated in the pro- posal, September, would be the same time for the annual na- tional appeal for The Catholic University of America in Washington. "It would be difficult to go wholeheartedly into two na- tional collections in a given month," said the archbishop, who is also chancellor of the university."CUA is dependent on its collection, and I think we should try to avoid conflict be- tween two pressing causes." Bishop John R. McGann of Rockville Centre, N.Y., who presented the proposal to the body of bishops, said the im- pact of a collection would be "greatest if held on the same date" but added that the tri- conference project would JASPER SERVICE AND SHOPPING GUIDE Buehlers I.G.A.

Currently, U.S. dioceses are asked to participate in 11 an- nual collections taken up throughout the year. He added that as with other national collections bishops could hold it when it would be most suitable.  He also said the tri: conference would have details on the formula of disbursement of monies collected to be presented to the bishops at their meeting next summer in Col- legeville, Minn. Bishop McGann and Bishop Michael J. Sheehan of Lubbock, Texas, are the two prelates on a 10-membar national advisory, commi.ttee for the tri: conference project. Bishop McGann also said the project would take into con- sideration those dioceses that already conduct appeals for Religious to avoid duplication. In remarks before the vote, Cardinal Joseph L. Bernardin of Chicago said he supported the collection and urged bishops to discuss the need of Religious , with diocesan finance councils ' and with priests and laity. He also suggested that bishops improve salary and See COLLECTION page 11 CALL 424-5536 TO GET YOUR BUSINESS OR SERVICE LISTED BELOW!
