HELENA – The Diocese of Helena’s annual Diocesan Offertory Program has reached its campaign goal for the second year in a row. The campaign sought $1.65 million this year.

Diocese of Boise
BOISE – The Boise Diocese has begun acquiring funding for a new retirement home for diocesan priests, to be located at Nazareth Retreat Center. The proposed facility will cost an estimated $1.5 million to build. The campaign itself probably will aim at $2 million, in order to purchase other residences for retired priests who wish to live more independently. A donor already has stepped forward with $250,000 in “seed money” to begin the project.
