Memorials & Tribute Giving

Gift in Memory or Honor of Loved One, Family, Friend, Special Occassion

Memorial-Tribute Gifting — A memorial is an expression of charity (love) in memory of one’s  living or deceased relative or friend.  A tribute, in the name of a person or group, is an honor and/or compliment; an acknowledgment of a special life experience, time, event or accomplishment.  Probably the most familiar memorial is the Mass Intention with a card. Also available are the Sanctuary Lamp, Wine and Hosts used during Masses.  Another tribute could  be supporting weekly works in our Outreach Program also with a card; donors receive recognition in our weekly bulletin.  Memorials or tributes may also include an item within the parish complex such as special artwork, liturgical item and more. (Available throughout the year)
