Making a memorial gift is a special way to honour the memory of a deceased loved one. When a deceased family member or friend was a person of faith, a gift to their Parish or the Diocese is a meaningful way to honour what was most special to them. To make a memorial gift in honour of a loved one, visit our memorial giving page. The giving page allows you to send an electronic card to the family of the deceased, or you can elect to have the Diocese send a card on your behalf. The card acknowledges that a gift has been made in honour of the deceased, however the amount of the gift is never disclosed.
Many people also consider including in their estate plans the suggestion of memorial gifts to their Parish or the Diocese in lieu of flowers. This is a powerful way to ensure that something that mattered deeply to you receives gifts that will truly make an impact after you are gone. When a loved one dies, family members are understandably often too distraught to consider including a charitable destination for memorial gifts in the obituary of their loved one. By outlining your wishes to your family, you can ensure your Parish or the Diocese receive gifts in your honour to help accomplish the mission entrusted to us by Christ.
