Johnson Fund or The Secular Clergy Association

The Johnson Fund exists for the support of the Secular Clergy of the Archdiocese of Birmingham who, on account of age, infirmity or sickness, need financial help. The Association depends on the charity of Benefactors, either through the annual collection or through donations requesting Mass to be said for a particular person or intention.

The Annual Collection is usually on the first weekend of November each year.

Anyone may become a Benefactor – or make someone else a Benefactor, living or dead by a donation of £10 or more. Two Masses are offered for each £10 and the secular priests of the Archdiocese each offer an annual Mass for all Parishioners and Benefactors.
