Does the Catholic Church financially support Catholic religious communities?
Religious communities are financially supported by the Church but it is mainly through generous donations of Catholic faithfuls and religious foundations
There is also the annual “Retirement Fund for Religious
” collection in every parish across the U.S, which helps a lot in the retirement needs of so many religious (especially religious women) who offered significant service for many years but were not paid a lot for their sacrifices and efforts
, especially in educating children at Catholic schools
