Leaving a Legacy
One way of helping the Parish financially is to include a legacy to the Parish in your Will. Many adults die without a valid Will, which results in their estates being allocated according to the law, instead of according to their wishes.
As a Will is a legal document it is best to get the advice of a Solicitor to make your instructions legally valid. A legacy to a charity such as the Parish may also reduce any liability to Inheritance Tax.
If you would like to leave a gift to the Parish in your Will, we suggest the following wording that can be used or amended by your Solicitor.
“I give and bequeath to the Parish of Saint Teresa of Avila, Glen Road, Belfast, BT11 8BL, Registered Charity No 103983, the sum of £……. to be applied to general purposes of the Parish and I declare that the receipt of the Parish Priest shall be sufficient discharge to my Executors.”
Special Appeal! Church of the Holy Spirit Heating Fund
As many of those who pray and celebrate the Sacraments in the Church of the Holy Spirit will know this past winter has been extremely cold in the Church. This is because the Fan Heating System is broken.
The Parish has had various engineers looking at the system to see what can be achieved. In the meantime, the Parish Finance Committee and the Priests have met recently, and it is our hope that various events / functions / initiatives might begin to raise the finances needed to pay for an improved Heating System for the Church of the Holy Spirit.
Any Donations or Initiatives, great or small, would be much appreciated. Please .... can you help?? If so, please get in touch with the Parish Office using the details above.
Thank you to all who have donated to this Special Appeal to date!
