Charitable giving is an important means of stewardship and as an expression of faith, gratitude, and love, it is deeply personal. Thank you for choosing to express your values by offering your support for the pastoral and social work of the Catholic Archdiocese of Wellington.

Unity/togetherness/collective action.

As the social outreach agency of the Catholic Archdiocese of Wellington, Catholic Social Services works on behalf of all in response to Christ’s call to serve the poor and marginalised in our society. Together, with your support, we can make a difference in the lives of children and families struggling to survive, endeavouring to thrive on the peripheries of our society.

Leaving a Legacy

Leaving a gift to the Archdiocese of Wellington in your will is a prayerful act which is generous and simple to do. As a final gift, it is a reflection and expression on your personal values and a reflection on what you have held dear. A Gift in Will is your legacy to the world. Talk it over with your family and if you would like to add a bequest to the Archdiocese of Wellington it to your will, the Archdiocese can arrange a complimentary solicitor’s appointment if you wish. Call 04 496 5187.
