Prudential Retirement Wants to Meet You!

As you know effective July 1, 2016, Prudential Retirement became the record keeper of our 403(b) Benefit Plan.  Participants have already received a number of mailings from Prudential during the past few months that provided information about the transition to the new record keeper.  Prudential will also be offering group informational meetings at various locations throughout the Archdiocese including the Quigley and Meyer Centers.  Julia Calderon, our plan’s Dedicated Retirement Counselor from Prudential, will be conducting the meetings.  We invite you to attend one of these group meetings to meet Julia and learn more about:

  • The educational resources and tools available on the website
  • The new investment lineup available through the plan
  • New plan features such as the Roth Option and more

Below is a schedule showing the location, date and time of each meeting that will be held at the Quigley and Meyer Centers.  It is estimated that each meeting will last about one hour.   No registration is required!

Meetings at the Quigley Center will be on Monday, September 19, at 1:30 p.m., and on Monday, October 3, at 10 a.m.  Meetings will be held in the QCR-1A, 1B & 1C conference rooms.

In the latest edition of Catholic Chicago, host Todd Williamson talks with Archbishop Blase Cupich about the importance of lay leadership being involved in the political process.  Couples celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary tell us the keys to their successful marriage.  And we'll visit a north-side parish where the energy and vitality of their faith community are reflected in a highly successful Theology On Tap program. 
Catholic Chicago is produced by the Archdiocese of Chicago's Office of Radio and Television. The program is hosted by Todd Williamson, Director of the Office for Divine Worship.
Comcast customers who live in Chicago and throughout the suburbs can see Catholic Chicago Sunday at 2:30 p.m. on CN-100, the Comcast Network (Channel 100). The program also airs Friday at 7 p.m. on Chicago Loop Cable Channel 25.
