Estates and Bequests

Gifts provided through wills and personal trusts have become an essential part of the financial support of the Cathedral. The vast majority of future gifts established for and ultimately received by the Cathedral are the result of charitable bequests established in one’s will or personal trust. Such gifts enable a donor to make significant contributions that may not have been possible during their lifetime. Charitable bequests can take various forms. You may leave a bequest of a specific sum of money, percentage of your estate, or the residual of your estate. If your will is already written, your advisor can add a simple amendment to provide a charitable bequest to the Cathedral. All potential donors are advised to consult with their attorney or professional advisor to determine which planned giving opportunity fits their unique vision and circumstances, as well as understand the specific tax savings and applicability of this information to your situation.

Diocesan Annual Appeal

We have been living through difficult times, but as you have experienced, the Lord remains with us. His love for us only grows stronger. During the pandemic, so many have found strength and love in the Eucharist and the Sacraments. Together, we have been able to continue our mission to feed the hungry, clothe the poor and protect the vulnerable. Together, we have found innovative ways to keep our faith alive through livestreamed Masses and virtual faith formation programs. And together, our Catholic Schools have continued to safely provide in-person learning during the past year.

 

This year’s Diocesan Annual Appeal theme, “Rising Together in Christ,” reflects the challenges we faced and the hope we now feel as we return to Mass and activities in our parishes. Only through your prayers and financial support of the Annual Appeal are we able to bring the love of Christ to our neighbors, to our children and to those most in need. Thank you for sharing the blessings that God has given to you by praying for and providing a financial commitment to this year’s Diocesan Annual Appeal. Without your generous support, some in the community might have to go without. Our world needs the Catholic Church now more than ever, and the Lord is never outdone in His generosity.

 

Join with all our parish communities, in RISING TOGETHER IN CHRIST and make a gift today!
