Leadership 100 made the first payment of $250,000 of the $1 million contribution to the Archdiocese Clergy Pension Fund in January of 2021. The Executive Committee of Leadership 100, in a virtual meeting on November 5, 2020, voted unanimously to make the contribution in response to a special appeal by His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros during the meeting.
His Eminence reaffirmed his strong commitment to the Priests and stated that the Clergy Pension Fund continues to be a priority for the Archdiocese to ensure a stable future and retirement for our Clergy.
Argyris Vassiliou, Leadership 100 Chairman, said: “There is no greater concern for our Church at present than the welfare of our Clergy. Leadership 100 has always been at the forefront of support for the training of our seminarians and the needs of our Clergy. The action of our Executive Committee demonstrates our confidence in the leadership of our Archbishop in setting our Church’s priorities.”
The decision was unanimously endorsed by the Leadership 100 Board of Trustees at the November 6th virtual meeting.
