Your Living Legacy

An invitation to share in our life and ministry

Planned Giving

Capuchin Heritage Circle

The Capuchin Heritage Circle recognizes and honors those persons who have made a planned gift to the Capuchin Province of St. Augustine, typically by including the province as a beneficiary in their will, trust, or other estate plans.

As a member of the Capuchin Heritage Circle, you join others like yourself in supporting the Capuchins' commitment to serve the Church and world by sharing their faith in Jesus Christ in word and deed.

Gift Designation

Capuchin Heritage Circle members may choose to designate a gift be used for the training and education of students preparing for the Capuchin priesthood or brotherhood. Another designation is the care of the province's senior friars in gratitude for their lifetime of service to others. Gifts without donor designation are at the discretion of the Province's leadership team, typically applied where the need is greatest.

Our gratitude

In gratitude to Capuchin Heritage Circle members, the friars extend these benefits:
  • Perpetual remembrance in the Capuchins' daily Masses and prayers
  • Remembrance of you and your special intentions in the Capuchins' annual Mass of Thanksgiving for Capuchin Heritage Circle Members
