Leave a Legacy

Xmas 2006

What will our legacy be?

Each November, as we pray for all our beloved dead, our bulletin covers feature the names of deceased benefactors to the St. James Cathedral.  These are people who over the past twenty years, through gifts both large and small, have made it possible for us to carry out our mission of prayer and service here on First Hill.Legacy Society

Their bequests have supported every part of our ministry, from our outreach to the poor and homeless, to our splendid music program, the maintenance of our Cathedral, and much more.

By remembering the Cathedral in their wills, these people—some of them quite poor, others quite wealthy—have continued to make a difference in the lives of many people (including ourselves!) long after their own lives have ended.

What will our legacy be?  Remembering St. James in your will is a way to say something about what you value the most, after you’re gone.

The Development Committee of St. James Cathedral is launching a Legacy Society to recognize and thank those who have remembered St. James in their estate planning.  If you have remembered the Cathedral in your will, please let us know.  If you would like more information on estate planning, contact Maria Laughlin in the Stewardship and Development Office, 206-382-4284.
