Espiritu Santo Legacy Society
The Espiritu Santo Legacy Society celebrates parishioners who will complete their life's journey with a lasting gift to assure the financial strength of our parish and school. Simply stated, Legacy Society gifts are commitments made today, completed in the future, often at the donor's passing or over a long period of time. Recognizing everything we have is a gift from God, Legacy Society members pledge their financial support to Espiritu Santo Catholic Church and School in perpetuity. Serving and strengthening our parish for eternity.
The Espiritu Santo Legacy Society is a way to honor and inspire those who make a legacy gift to our parish by inclusion in their will or another type of legacy gift like a Charitable Gift Annuity. Our Legacy Society will provide three primary benefits to the parish:
- Services to the Parish: Through education and appropriate professional referrals, staff and lay leaders will help parishioners to put their estate in order and take care of such important things as advanced medical directives. Seminars will be held with expert speakers and information provided regularly. Nationally, 50% of people die without a will. That can be disastrous for the surviving loved ones. The Espiritu Santo Legacy Society will help its parishioners to be thoughtful about their final affairs.
- Strengthen the Parish: The good work done every day by the ministries, groups and organizations of Espiritu Santo parish only happens because of the regular and faithful generosity of you, our parishioners. Our hope is that every one of you will make a legacy gift through your will or other estate instrument. It's a wonderful way to bless those good people served by Espiritu Santo in the future by supporting the annual and long term needs of the parish and it's ministries that grow the Catholic faith such as the school.
- Permanent Commitments: The continuity and purpose of the Legacy Society will be to ensure that the life giving efforts of our ministries continue building the kingdom here on Earth into perpetuity. What better way to give witness of your faith at the very end of your life to your family and friends.
The Legacy Society serves as an informational resource to offer "Lifetime Planning Seminars" programs to assist parishioners in learning more about such important matters as estate, tax and financial planning, elder law, charitable giving, medical directives and living wills to name a few.
