HELPING THE PRIESTS WHO' VE HELPED US
Did you know there' s a home for retired priests of the Archdiocese? There is, and you have an opportunity to share your gratitude by supporting the men who' ve ministered to you and your family for many decades.
The Leo C. Byrne Residence offers 29 individual apartments for priests who have reached retirement age, most of whom continue to actively serve parishes and organizations around the Archdiocese.
The GRATITUDE Capital Campaign Renovation Project (coordinated by the Catholic Community Foundation) will fund work required to bring the entire Byrne Residence to a level of security and efficiency suitable for the safety and well- being of each resident priest.
We ask for your support of this much needed renovation.

The Gratitude Campaign
The Leo C. Byrne Residence offers a unique living opportunity for retired priests. The residence allows senior priests to live in community and continue
to serve the needs of parishes and organizations.
It offers 29 individual apartments at an affordable price. The building, however, is deteriorating and badly needs repairs, remodeling, and updating.
The Gratitude Campaign recently launched to raise 6. 5 million to fund the renovation. These upgrades will make the residence a suitable home for the
archdiocesan priests who have given so much to our Catholic community.
Renovations will fix deteriorating conditions and create an attractive, comfortable, safe environment for current and future residents. They include:
-Updating security, internet access, phone systems, and elevator.
-Repairing the building exterior, windows, and electrical and lighting systems.
-Remodeling and painting individual and common rooms.
-Updating roofing, flooring, and landscaping.
