Bequests

Like a family, Saint Patrick Parish has been there for us through the years, offering us the sacraments to strengthen us as we make our way on our earthly pilgrimage. We’ve made lifelong friends and enjoyed fellowship with friends, old and new. Sunday Homilies, given in an engaging manner, have helped encourage us and to bring better order in our lives. We’ve enjoyed the hymns provided by our wonderful music department. Through our social outreach, we’ve better understood the needs of the less fortunate and how we can help them, particularly when we work together as a parish community. For those of us blessed with children, Saint Patrick Parish has formed and enriched them through our Religious Education Program and through Saint Patrick Catholic School, both educationally and spiritually.

There are always ways that you can continue to support Saint Patrick Parish, first through your prayers and also through your gifts of time, talent and treasure. For example, the gift of time; to name just a few, so many parishioners volunteer to teach in our Religious Education Program, become Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers and Ushers, make communion calls, help with cleaning the Church and act as Sacristans. The gift of talent; many in our Parish bring their own expertise to the Parish Council and Parish Finance Council, share their particular trades of Carpentry, Architecture, Computer Programming etc. The gift of treasures; some parishioners have remembered us in their wills which has allowed us to continue as a strong Parish meeting the needs of its parishioners. We ask if you could please consider:

Donation: You can make a one-time, tax deductible donation or make a recurring donation by joining our Parish and becoming a registered member of this dynamic church.

Planned Giving: As the diocese and the churches involved continue towards collaboration, we are a stand-alone Parish, please know that your planned gift to Saint Patrick Parish can ensure the legacy of our Parish.

Wills and Bequests: Once you’ve taken care of your family, please consider a bequest to Saint Patrick Parish. If you decide to name Saint Patrick parish in your will, please notify me or the business manager so we may thank you.

Insurance and Stock Gifts: There are several ways to turn insurance policies into charitable instruments. Stocks, bonds and other securities are also alternative ways to give that can benefit both you and Saint Patrick Parish.

Please let us know if you need any further information regarding the above by contacting the Rectory office at 781-438-0960.

Thank you for considering St. Patrick Parish!
