‘From time to time, parishioners may be prompted to think about their estate planning and the need to write or amend their Last Will and Testament,’ says Jean Sloan, Director of the Archdiocese of Wellington’s Office of Charitable Giving – Te Tari Tākoha.
‘Many people wish to express the importance of their Catholic Faith by providing a gift to the Church in their will after first providing for their families. People can do both,’ Ms Sloan says. ‘By making a residual gift, individuals provide first and foremost for those most important to them. What remains, “the rest and remainder” after all other bequests have been paid, can provide a legacy to the Church.’
