SAINT PASCAL PARISH St. Pascal Cub Scout Troop 3815's Pancake Breakfast January 13th 8am-Noon Heimsath Hall Where Do I Belong? I wiped your tears at the funeral; I wiped your tears at the wedding. When your allergy was bad, I was there for you. Don't leave me on the floor or next to the Missalette. After using me, please take me home with you -- where I belong. Page 6
EPIPHANY JANUARY 06, 2013 THE DIFFERENCE YOU CAN MAKE What can you do now that won’t cost you anything but still help the parish? One way is through your estate planning. Most people have families they need to provide for and that is extremely important. Perhaps some portion of your estate could be given to Saint Pascal. Here’s how you can do it: Name Saint Pascal to receive part of your IRA. Just ask the custodian or trustee for a new beneficiary form. Make a life insurance gift. Your insurance agent can supply a beneficiary form that names Saint Pascal as a beneficiary for all or part of the policy. Investigate P.O.D. accounts. In most areas, you can name Saint Pascal to receive CD’s or savings accounts at death, often called P.O.D. (pay on death) accounts. Leave part of your stock portfolio. Brokerage accounts generally will permit investors to name beneficiaries for securities held at the firm. Add Saint Pascal when you make or amend your will. It’s another wonderful way you can leave a legacy for Saint Pascal! If you have a revocable living trust, include Saint Pascal as a beneficiary. Any immediate gifts made through your living trust are tax deductible. Finally, when naming Saint Pascal as your beneficiary, the correct language is: “I give (a percentage or dollar amount) to the Catholic Bishop of Chicago – A Corporation Sole, for the sole benefit of Saint Pascal Parish, Chicago.” When named in this way, the money will be used exclusively to benefit our parish. REMINDER TO ALL ORGANIZATIONS When checking out keys in the rectory, if you are not given a green room condition sheet, please ask for one. This sheet must be filled out and returned with the key. It is one of the ways the maintenance staff can be made aware of things that need fixing. Save the Dates!!
