Franciscan Friar Conventual Victor Abegg and St. Paul Parish in Pismo Beach, California (which he serves as pastor) are concerned about the wellbeing of retired priests and religious. Thousands of sisters, friars and of course priests who spent their lives bringing God to humanity and making the world a better place now need assistance in the more vulnerable years of their lives.
To help these men and women, Friar Victor's St. Paul Parish held a second collection on a recent Sunday. The money will be pooled with similar second collections from other parishes across the United States. Franciscans like Friar Victor always know that when people work together they can affect greater change for the better. Friar Victor also knows that we have a responsibility to help people who now just cannot take care of themselves anymore.
