How shall I make a return to the Lord for all the good
God has done for me?
Psalm 16:12

Stewardship of treasure begins not because God has need of our gifts but because each one of us has a need to return to God a truly grateful portion of our time, talent and treasure in thanksgiving for all the blessings that He has given us. The highest motive for giving is our gratitude to God for His many blessings.

Making a bequest to your parish, school, and/or other entities of the Catholic Church is not only a sign of benevolence, but also a mark of your desire to help shape the future. Please see the following sites for more information about leaving your legacy to the Catholic Church:
