Leaving a bequest
Many Archdiocesan works currently helping the needy in Christ’s name were made possible by bequests.
Each of us finds different ways to make our mark on the world. One way of doing this is by making a bequest. A bequest is a gift left in a will. When you leave a bequest to The Church, you give a gift that lasts longer than your lifetime, a gift that will always be remembered.
The need for the material and spiritual assistance provided by the Church is always growing. The work of the Church in the Archdiocese of Brisbane takes many forms including:
- Preaching Christ’s message
- Helping families in crisis
- Caring for the Aged
- Support for youth and young adults
- Care for children
- Support for the Aboriginal and Islander communities
- Education of the Clergy
- Support and counselling for prisoners and their families
- Support for the mentally and physically impaired
- Christian education at all levels
- Support for the sick and retired clergy
After providing for your family, a bequest to the Archdiocese of Brisbane, or a specific entity / agency of the Archdiocese of Brisbane, is a special way of ensuring that the work of the Church continues. Depending on family situations, some bequests are large and some are small but all are vital to the work of the Church.
