As we approach the end of 2017 and you are thinking of ways to give back to our community, I would like to share with you a new and exciting opportunity for all of us to leave a legacy by making a gift to our recently established Nachazel Memorial Endowment for St. John the Baptist.
Like any other endowment, this is a permanent fund invested to produce income. Our gifts to this fund (the principal) will remain untouched; only the income it generates will be used.
Thanks to the vision and generosity of one of our parishioners, Bill Nachazel, our parish now has this endowment that will continue to grow and become a permanent source of income for our church. Since endowments are maintained forever, all contributions to the fund continue to fuel ministries even 25, 50 or 100 years from now. For Bill, this was the perfect way to honor her late wife, Louise Nachazel, and make a permanent impact in this vibrant community that was so important to her.
It’s my hope that every generation that goes through this parish will be able to add to this fund with whatever they are able - whether in cash, stock or real estate – and, in this way, leave a lasting legacy for our faith community.
I invite you to prayerfully consider donating to this fund today or in the future. You may do so online https://giving.cfoscc.org/sjbparish or ask the office for a donation form.
God bless you!
Rev. Ritche Bueza
