Tribute Gifts

Gifts in Honor

We all know people who have everything they could ever want or need. Yet we wish to acknowledge our friendship with them, or recognize a meaningful accomplishment they have achieved. You may wish to consider making a gift in their honor. Our parish offers you a way to honor someone who has been important to you by posting your loving tribute to them. Your gifts can be used in our ministries as we respond to our call to be 'disciples who form disciples'.



Memorial Gifts

We have all felt the grief that results when someone who was a part of our life is no longer with us. As you know, the loss of a family member or a friend can be a painful experience that can be lessened by the support of caring individuals who take the time to tell you how that person made a difference in their life. You can help perpetuate the memory of a loved one by making a gift in his or her memory.
