Welcome to the website for the Nottingham Diocese Retired Priests Appeal

NOVEMBER 2018- We have now raised £4,347,873.00 towards our £5 million pound goal. Thank you for your generosity and support.

Rt Rev Patrick McKinney, our Bishop of Nottingham and Patron for the appeal says ‘The Retired Priests Appeal has now been running for nearly 4 years and has been embraced by parishioners throughout the Diocese. They have helped to raise over £4 million pounds and continue to raise funds at parish level. However, some parishes, through no fault of their own, are struggling to raise their suggested contributions.

Many of our parishes are in low income, socially deprived areas and food banks are a regular feature. At this stage of the appeal, we need to continue our efforts to support our sick and retired priests. I am immensely grateful to the lay people of the diocese for helping me fulfil the Diocese’s obligation’.


John Curran, Appeal Chairman is keen to encourage donations:  “This is a chance for us to say “thank you” and to remember the many critical moments in our lives when a priest been there to assist us.” Please do read the information on this site, and get in touch if  have any questions. As part of the family of the church, our priests should be accorded the respect and support they need at the times when they need it. This is also a chance for us to remember those many critical moments in our lives when a priest has been there to assist us. Supporting the priesthood is indeed an obligation, but also a privilege.

I therefore hope you will join me in helping our sick and retired clergy, and that you will lend your support to the Retired Priests Appeal as generously as possible.
