Planned Giving Brief: Our Catholic Church has spanned the centuries and the globe and through all previous pandemics and disasters has been a source of charity to all through its parish priests, and religious. We invite you to make a grateful response to God for these gifts by planning a deferred gift to your parish. Visit the archdiocese’s gift planning website, to learn how to accept this invitation.
  3. Planned Giving Brief: The Catholic Church is made up of all races; families and singles, sinners and saints. In these times of disruption and uncertainty, it is good to know that through our parishes, as members of the Catholic Church, we have unity. The Office of Stewardship and Development invites you to make a grateful response to God for the gift of your parish by designating it, by name, as a beneficiary of a retirement asset, annuity, or life insurance policy. James 1:17.
  4. Planned Giving Brief: Charitable Gift Annuities. If you are concerned about your financial security given the ups and downs of the stock market during the COVID-19 crisis, you may want to consider funding a charitable gift annuity and at the same time make a gift to our parish. Provide for your family, protect your assets, and give at the same time. Email the Office of Stewardship and Development, Legacy Giving officer at for more information.
  5. Planned Giving Brief: Gift from an IRA. Will you be 72 years of age sometime this year? U.S. tax law requires you to take a minimum distribution from your IRA. If you do not need your required distribution, we invite you to have your IRA account administrator write the check directly to the parish so you can avoid paying the tax on the distribution.
