The Archdiocese of Newark currently has almost 200 retired priests. Many of these priests continue to be involved on a regular basis in pastoral ministry. In 1982, the Saint John Vianney Residence in Rutherford opened as a facility for retired priests who choose the communal style of living. In 1998, the Msgr. James F. Kelley Residence opened in Caldwell as a second facility for retired priests. A quarterly Newsletter is prepared and published by retired priests. They also offer Days of Recollection for retired priests from the entire State of New Jersey. The Director of the Ministry to Retired Priests also makes regular visits to those retired priests who are hospitalized or reside in nursing homes.
