Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
With gratitude for the blessings of the past and in celebration of the joy we experience together as a Parish Family, we now strive to ensure our hope for the future. The generosity of planned gifts enables us to endow the future with the same opportunities we have enjoyed. I think of those grace-filled experiences of the presence of God, the times when we have embraced His plan and purpose in our lives and developed deep and abiding friendships through our Fellowship as a Community. This feeling of community is truly a reflection of the Communion of Saints. Just as the Saints who have gone before us intercede and advocate for us from their place in heaven, we too can make sure that future generations will benefit from our commitment to Christ.
I ask that you prayerfully consider the many ways an enduring gift from you will empower the continuation of our mission to Know, Love and Serve the Lord. I give thanks for our past history together, I celebrate with great joy how God is manifest in our present moment, and I hope with certainty that you’ll join me in securing a bright future for our family of faith here at Saint Pius.
Sincerely Yours in Christ,
Reverend Monsignor Anthony J. Marcaccio
Who is Giuseppe Sarto?
St. Pius X (1835-1914)
Giuseppe Sarto was born in Venetia, Italy. Ordained a priest at the age of twenty- three, he spent seventeen years in parish ministry until named Bishop in 1884. In 1892, he was named Cardinal and in 1903 was elected as Pope. He chose the name Pius and the papal motto: “To Restore All Things in Christ.” In 1954, he was canonized before an enormous crowd at St. Peter’s. In 1955, our school was dedicated in his honor. Our parish establishment followed in 1960.
Although born very poor, he enriched the Church through his treasure of faith. The Sarto Society honors those whose stewardship mirrors that of Pius X and serves to ensure the Church will be renewed for future generations.
There are many ways to establish your legacy of love and stewardship;
A Bequest in Your Will
Perhaps the simplest way to give. Some individuals leave an outright gift of cash, others leave a percentage of their assets or the remainder.
Gifts of Real Estate or
other Tangible Assets
An ideal way to give to the Church when the donated assets are highly appreciated.
Gifts of IRA’s
A great way of avoiding the income tax consequences.
Gifts of Life Insurance
Allow you to give a gift by listing St. Pius X as your beneficiary.
Life Income Arrangements
Charitable Remainder Trusts and Charitable Annuities provide income back to the donor.
Gifts of Cash or Securities
May be established with a 5-figure gift, minimum.
