Wouldn't it be wonderful to bring the unfinished mission of Jesus to the entire world?
Including a bequest to Catholic Mission in your Will enables you to fund the future missionary projects that aim to bring Life for All.
But bequests are not just about the future. By providing a source of future funds, you allow missionaries to pursue their work with greater confidence today - helping them to work harder to bring aid to the poor, care to the sick, freedom to the oppressed and God's salvation to the world. And you are ensuring there will be others to follow in their footsteps.
The poor, sick and oppressed people of the world are waiting for the message that Catholic Mission will bring them.
As did Jesus, Catholic Mission is sent to:
• bring good news to the poor
• proclaim release to captives and recovery of sight to the blind
• let the oppressed go free
• proclaim the year of the Lord's favour (Cf. Lk 4: 18).
In 160 countries around the world Catholic Mission is:
• Providing education, health, hygiene and nutrition
• Building schools, orphanages, health clinics and churches
• Partnering local churches and communities with spiritual and pastoral care
• Fostering local church leadership
• Caring for children
For example in the African country of Zambia, Catholic Mission funded the Home of Joy orphanage on the outskirts of the capital Lusaka. Approximately 50 children experience the real joy of a loving home, equipping them for a self-reliant future.
Other Catholic Mission projects in Zambia include the formation of 126 catechists, the construction of a new church that will also serve as a multi-purpose hall and the digging of a well and construction of a water tank for a congregation of Sisters.
A Will gives you the peace of mind of knowing that the security of your loved ones has been ensured.
A Will ensures that your assets are distributed the way you want and allows you to support those causes that you were passionate about throughout your life.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a bequest?
A bequest is a gift of any kind set out in a Will. It is a simple but powerful way to provide support for the causes that matter the most to you. It transforms your Will into one of the most potent tools for change there is, with little or no impact on your lifestyle today.
How can I go about including a bequest to Catholic Mission in my Will?
Even if you have a Will the easiest way is to seek the help of a solicitor. Catholic Mission has a number of solicitors who are prepared to act for donors, usually at a discounted fee.
