Parish Memorial Endowment
Lasting gifts may be given in honor of loved ones who have died or in honor living friends and family (anniversaries, birthdays, special occasions) by making a contribution of any amount to the Parish Memorial Endowment. This designated fund is held in the West Virginia Catholic Foundation where the principal is never spent; only interest may be used for liturgical items for the church (e.g., vestments, vessels, art work and music resources. Each month all those memorialized in the Endowment are remembered as a weekend mass intention. Gifts can be sent to the parish office or placed in the weekly collection baskets. Local funeral homes will also arrange such memorial gifts.
Memoral donations of $500 or more will also provide a leaf or other symbolic remebrance on the Tree of Life in the back of the Church.
