Fr. Paul is still offering a book study. We will review “Introduction to the Devout Life” by our patron St. Francis de Sales. Don’t worry if you missed the first sessions, join us for the next one. The study continues the First Mondays of the month at The Dish Café through May, except for Easter break in April. The study will be repeated on Saturdays, later in the same week as the Monday sessions, at 9:15 AM in Mary’s House. Click here for more information and the printable schedule. The text is available for free online: here, with options to read on a mobile device, computer, or download. Copies will be available for those who need it.
The Gift That Keeps On Giving…
Please Consider Remembering Saint Francis de Sales in Your Will
Charitable bequests can take various forms. You may leave a bequest of a specific sum of money, percentage of your estate, piece of property or the residual of your estate. If your will is already written, your adviser can add a simple amendment to provide a charitable bequest to Saint Francis de Sales Church or School. Another important way of helping provide for future needs giving a lasting gift for the benefit Saint Francis de Sales Church or School by adding to an existing endowment fund or creating a new one. Distributions are limited to no more than 4.5 percent of the principle yearly so your gift and support are ongoing.
Currently we have three endowment funds with the West Virginia Catholic Foundation:
Saint Francis de Sales Church (Beckley)
Saint Francis de Sales School (Beckley)
Saint Sebastian Cemetery (Beckley)
For more information or the proper language to use in your will, please contact Mr. Bryan Minor, WV Catholic Foundation at (304) 233-0880 or firstname.lastname@example.org
