Where there is a Will … there is a Way to Make a Difference.
Members of the Family Forever Society have remembered the Missionaries of the Holy Family with a Legacy Gift, typically a Bequest or Trust. This Legacy Gift is a Way for Benefactors to Make a Difference that reaches into the future beyond their years. Benefactors sometimes share in advance about their estate plans through a letter. In other situations, a Legacy Gift first becomes known after one’s passing. In both situations, our benefactors become a member of the Family Forever Society.
Benefits of Being Family Forever…
You will have the joy of knowing that your Legacy Gift will enable the Apostolates of the Missionaries of the Holy Family into the future. Our current priority is to increase the Retirement Trust Fund principal so it can provide care for our Senior Priests and Brothers. Currently it is less than 25% funded.
The Family Forever Society is our way to express how deeply we appreciate being remembered by you in such a personal and permanent way.
When first notified of the Legacy Gift the Benefactor is:
- Enrolled in the Perpetual Mass Association
- Remembered in Daily Prayer by the Holy Family Priests & Brothers
- Acknowledged as a Family Forever Society member
When the Legacy Gift is fulfilled:
- Masses are celebrated for the repose of the soul of the Benefactor
