Planned Giving and Stewardship

I thank you for your generosity – a generosity already shown in your support of the Archbishop’s Charities and Development Drive (ABCD). Your generosity is the answer to someone’s prayer. Thank you!

You do not need to redo your entire will to make a provision for a charitable bequest to St. Martha Catholic Church. See your attorney about preparing a Codicil (a written change or addition) for you.

For more information contact the rectory or call the Office of Planned Giving at (305) 762-1110.

“Do you think I have come to give you peace on Earth? No, I tell you, but rather division.” (Luke 12:51)

Living a stewardship lifestyle means stepping out of our comfort zone when needed. Many of us like to play it safe, not cause waves, stay in the middle of the road. The Lord is asking us to take a stance in our believes, no matter how difficult it might be in today’s world.
