Making a Gift Through Your Will
“As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace” (1 Pt 4:10)
The simplest planned gift to the Church is a bequest in your last will, Testament or in your living trust to your parish. 
Parishioners providing gifts through a will and personal trusts have become an essential part of the financial support of our Church. Such gifts enable a donor to make contributions that may not have been possible during their lifetime.  By including a bequest to St. Michael the Archangel Parish in your last will and testament you create a lasting legacy of your faith and generosity that benefits the parish. 

A bequest is a transfer of cash, securities, or other property to the parish that you make through your will or living trust.  A bequest to St. Michael the Archangel Parish can be made for a specific amount, for a percentage of your estate, or even for all or a portion of what is left in your estate after you have made specific bequests to your family and loved ones.

Therefore, it is necessary to have a valid will or trust in order to accomplish your goal of leaving a legacy to the Church as your final act of stewardship. And setting up a bequest gift is fairly simple. You may make a bequest by including the following language in your will:

"I bequeath to St. Michael the Archangel Parish, Livonia, Michigan (you may state a percentage or exact amount) to be used or disposed of as an unrestricted gift for its general purposes.”
