Our faith, values and our deepest commitments can endure even at end of life. Through planned giving we can ensure that our earthly expression of our life of faith continues for generations to come. By including St. James’ in estate planning, we help assure the continuing witness and work of the Church and other institutions that have sustained and nourished us during our lifetime.
St. James’ benefits greatly from the gifts of talent, time, and financial support offered by current parishioners. But we, and our mission, also benefit from the gifts of those parishioners who have gone before us. Commitment to the ministries of this parish and a vision of an ongoing witness to God’s love lead many to provide financial support to the parish and its future through bequests and other planned gifts. Such legacies, large and small, sustain our ministries and can be an occasion for joy.
