Planned Giving

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” – Matthew 6:19-21

Bequests for the benefit of the parish and diocese may be included in your will. The wording should include the following: “… the Most Rev. Gary Gordon, Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Victoria, or his successors in office, for the use and benefit of St. Rose of Lima Parish, Sooke, BC …”

Charitable Gift Annuities and Charitable trusts may also be set up to benefit St. Rose of Lima Parish as well as donors and surviving family members. Please consult with your attorney when considering planned giving opportunities.
