PLANNED GIVING

We are very grateful to parishioners who have been very intentional about remembering Saint Mary’s in their estate planning.

A common question from parishioners: 

“Is there any difference between a gift to a foundation in the name of Saint Mary’s and a gift given directly to Saint Mary’s?

YES!  There’s a VERY BIG DIFFERENCE.

Simply put, a gift given directly to Saint Mary’s is far more beneficial.  Questions?  Please feel free to contact the pastor.
