Memorials & Tribute Giving

Gift in Memory or Honor of Loved One, Family, Friend, Special Occassion

Memorial-Tribute Gifting — A memorial is an expression of charity (love) in memory of one’s living or deceased relative or friend.  A tribute, in the name of a person or group, is an honor and/or compliment; an acknowledgment of a special life experience, time, event or accomplishment. 

One of the most familiar memorials in the Church is the Mass Intention.  However, there are additional ways to remember an individual, family member or group too.  Donors receive recognition in our weekly bulletin and a card is available to gift to family, individual or group.  Memorials or tributes may also include an item within the parish complex such as special artwork, liturgical item and more on a seasonal basis.
