How Can the Catholic Community Foundation Help You to Leave a Legacy?

12-11-2019NewslettersJohn Even

On Friday, November 1st, we all celebrated All Saints’ Day, a tremendous feast day celebrating all of the saints, including those in our families, whether known or unknown. What amazes me about the saints that we celebrate throughout the liturgical year is their story, the legacy that they left behind as a result of the lives that they led. During this month, I am especially grateful for my parents, my grandparents, my great-grandparents, etc. for passing on the Catholic faith to me and my family that we hold so dearly.

As Catholics, we are all called to be saints and to leave a legacy. First and foremost, we are called to leave a legacy of faith for our children and grandchildren, so that they too might live a faith-filled life and join us one day in heaven. In addition, I believe that we are also called to leave a financial legacy both during our lives and after we are gone, no matter what the size of our estate.
