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

As we respond to the challenges of the pandemic in our families, our parishes, and or Diocese, let us continue to turn our hearts to our one true hope - Jesus Christ. His love is unending, unfading, unshakable. We are bound together in the Eucharist, bound together in hope.  Through this appeal, the Bishop invites all Catholics to join with him to address the important programs, missions, and work of the Diocese of Scranton.

As a caring community of Catholics, we need each other, rely on each other, and willingly make the choice to help one another. We do this because it is who we are, and it is what we do.

When our Catholic community works together toward a positive goal, our accomplishments are great indeed. But without your participation, without you in our community, we are less. Our work is less. The difference we make is not as great, and our reach is not as far.
It will take your help to make this Diocesan Appeal a successful one.  Learn more about what the appeal helps and how you can join with thousands of fellow Catholics to make your difference.
