Legacy Giving:

"People have made at least a start at understanding the meaning of life when they plant trees under which they know they will never sit." – Adapted by David Elton Trueblood

We are so grateful to all who have taken the opportunity to extend their legacy of faith beyond their lifetime.  Legacy giving is one expression of the wise use of the personal resources God entrusts to us.  It is a gift that keeps on giving.  Although the seminary benefits from the giving of these resources, the true beneficiaries are the future generations of Catholics who will be inspired by the faith and leadership of the fine men formed at St. Vincent's. 

Please consider leaving St. Vincent's in your will.  Remember, everyone can be a philanthropist and every gift counts.   

A charitable bequest may be your answer so that others may serve

A charitable bequest may be your answer so that others may serve

Designating that a portion of your estate goes to the seminary will enable you to make a substantial gift. By doing this you will leave a measure of the blessings God has bestowed upon you in your lifetime so that others may serve. This level of giving will ensure that throughout this new century, seminarians will acquire the skills to meet the challenges of priesthood.
