An Armagh priest has sent me a copy of Eamon Martin’s latest letter to priests.
He is reminding.priests to update their wills and lodge a copy of their wills in the archbishop’s House.
Conveniently he is supplying priests with a Will Template.
He is remind priests that they themselves are responsible for the cost of their funeral, their grave, their headstone and any after funeral booze up 😀
In the past, in many dioceses paid for priest’s funeral. Those days seem gone.
I would imagine a goodly number of Armagh priests would not want Amy Martin reading their will and finding out what money property and possessions might have?
Some priests may have family money?
Others will have things left to them in wills by parishioners.
There will be some priests who have paid themselves extra out of parish monies over the years and decades.
As my father used to say: “Every priest christens his own child first”.
