Clergy

 

Many elderly priests who have given their lives in service to the faithful of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia now have health issues, physical disabilities and are in need of care and support. There are currently 154 retired priests within the Archdiocese.

Villa St. Joseph

I lived at Regina Coeli, our retirement home in Warminster, for 11 years. I’m slowing down a bit, so I thought I better start looking at Villa St. Joseph. I have been at the Villa now for a few months and I am delighted to be here. They take very good care of us. The service is excellent, and the staff provides everything we need.

When you come to live at the Villa you don’t feel like you are coming to a strange place. You are right at home when you walk in. We have good times together. We have our meals together and pray together. We have daily Mass where we concelebrate together.

The Catholic Charities Appeal gives people a sense of community. They have many programs to support and help those deprived and those who have nothing. We take a lot for granted in our society and need to recognize that CCA is here to help people grow and to support future generations. Love is letting go of self – a surrender of me to you. The Catholic Charities Appeal, and all the beneficiaries they support, is the perfect example of love. It’s what it’s all about!
