Nuns sue Boston Archdiocese over retirement funds

Nuns sue Boston Archdiocese over retirement funds

An order of Roman Catholic nuns has sued the Boston Archdiocese and Cardinal Sean O'Malley after years of failed efforts to withdraw from a church-run pension fund.
The Daughters of St. Paul have asked the Supreme Judicial Court to order pension plan trustees to provide them with a full accounting of the nuns' portion of the fund, or to rule that the nuns were technically never part of the church-run plan and order the archdiocese to reimburse the nuns' contributions.
The funds at stake are not for the nuns, but for the retirement of lay employees of their publishing house.
A lawyer for nuns tells The Boston Globe the order went to court as a last resort.
An archdiocese spokesman says the church is confident the suit can be resolved.
