By Sister Laura Goedken
The mission of the Diocese of Davenport is to be a eucharistic community who calls others to be disciples of Christ and to love God and neighbor. As a reader of The Catholic Messenger you live this mission.
You want the Church to provide faith leaders for your parish. When you donate to the Annual Diocesan Appeal and when you give to the Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Davenport, you are helping to provide faith leaders for the parishes.
When you include your parish, the Diocese of Davenport and the Catholic Foundation in your estate plans, you are laying a strong foundation for the mission of the Church to continue. An estate gift could be a gift from your retirement plan, a beneficiary of an insurance policy, inclusion in a trust or a gift in your will. You have many options.
I invite you to explore all options. Please contact Sister Laura Goedken, OP at (563) 888-4252 or Goedken@davenportdiocese.org for more information on how to include the Catholic Foundation, a Catholic school or your parish in your estate planning.
(Sr. Goedken is development director for the Diocese of Davenport.)
