By Sister Laura Goedken
As our parishes are working through the parish planning process, several times parishioners have said they want the Church to be there for their children and grandchildren. One way to help make this possible is to build the Church up financially.
Have you considered including the Catholic Foundation and your parish in your will? A gift in your estate to the Catholic Foundation will live on for many years to come since 4 percent of the average fair market value of the Foundation is spent each year. A gift could be given for diocesan operations, faith formation, seminary education, deacon formation and so much more.
Please contact Sister Laura Goedken, OP, at (563) 888-4252 or Goedken@daven
