“The Minister of the Congregation is directed to instruct the people, from time to time, about the duty of Christian parents to make prudent provision for the well-being of their families, and of all persons to make wills, while they are in health, arranging for the disposal of their temporal goods, not neglecting, if they are able, to leave bequests for religious and charitable use.” – The Book of Common Prayer
At St. Laurence, right in line with the direction from the Prayer Book above, we encourage all of our members to remember the ministry of the Church in their wills.
Usually, planned giving involves financial or estate planning. Please consider one of the following:
A bequest in a Will
A Life Income Gift such as a pooled income fund, a charitable gift annuity or a charitable remainder trust
Gifts of special assets, including: real estate, closely held stock, life insurance and retirement accounts
If you'd like to know more about how to do this, please feel free to contact our Treasurer Les Meisl here.
