“For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Jeremiah 29:11

Recently, I was reflecting upon the above verse. I found myself thinking: God has tremendous plans for us. He has been carefully and lovingly planning for us our entire life. But…

Have we planned well for Him? Do we have generous, thoughtful plans for our loved ones like the Lord does for us?

Catholic Leadership Institute is hard at work on two options to help us answer those questions.

My Catholic Will

The first way is through our will. Recently, CLI has partnered with My Catholic Will as a way to help us plan for the future of our Church and the future of those we love.

My Catholic Will is an easy and faith-filled tool that assists you in putting together your will with the Catholic faith top of mind in as little as 15 minutes and with the opportunity to provide a Legacy Gift to the Catholic Leadership Institute. By visiting the website and using the referral code (CATHOLICLEADERS), you can write your legal will for FREE and pass on your faith in an incredible way.

CLI Receives Inaugural Endowment Gift

Second – and I am absolutely thrilled to announce this – Catholic Leadership Institute has created an endowment thanks to the generosity of our first endowment donor. CLI is hard at work building up the Church today, and all those who make an endowment gift are actively making a choice to support CLI for generations to come. What a legacy!

If you would like to know more about either of these options, simply feel free to reach out to me. I would love to help.

As I think more and more about the plans for the future of our Church, I am feeling the call to do everything I can for the next generation of Catholics. I hope you will join me in that same commitment through exploring My Catholic Will and/or considering your own legacy for our faith and loved ones.

P.S. Catholic Leadership Institute gives thanks and prays often for those members of CLI’s Planned Giving Society – the St. Therese Society. Thank you for sharing your generosity to ensure that the Church is here for our loved ones in the way it has been for us.
