The largest gift our parish will ever receive will likely be a planned gift from someone who has been a long-time supporter and considers our parish community to be family. As Catholics, we believe that our assets and our ability to acquire them are gifts from a loving, generous God. We have a responsibility to use these wisely and prudently as well as to share them with others—our family certainly, but also with those institutions devoted to spreading God’s sovereignty on earth.

Bequests in wills, trusts, insurance and gifts of appreciated stock are all planned gifts: gifts that come after much thought and consultation with professional advisors. These important gifts will ensure our lives will touch the lives that come after us; building the faith for generations to come. Encouraging legacy gifts benefits the parish by securing support for ministries into the future, and gives our parish members a way to continue the faithful stewardship they practice in life.
