Letter from Bishop Grecco On Planned Giving

December 1, 2017







November 15, 2017

Dear parishioners,

The Diocese of Charlottetown is blessed with faithful parishioners and generous supporters.

All forty-nine parishes of our Diocese across this Island are built on shared faith and support.

As such, it has always been our parishioners who help ensure that the Diocese can continue

to offer the spiritual leadership and services that the parish communities need.


Many generous souls have spent a lifetime building a legacy and wish to make decisions now

to allow this legacy to live on. Planned gifts touch the lives of future generations. Please help

to keep your Catholic Church strong and vibrant.


A commitment made today means a brighter future for tomorrow’s children, youth, women

and families.


Some recent projects that would not have been possible without financial support from

Catholic parishioners include:

  1. 1.Our Lady of Hope Retreat Center
  2. A new organ for St. Dunstan’s Basilica
  3. Continuing education for our priests and education of seminarians
  4. Parish based youth programs.


There are many ways you can support the Diocese and your parish through planned giving,

which include: Donations, Bequests, Securities, RRSP/RRIF, Life Insurance, a Charitable Gift

Annuity, a Charitable Remainder Trust, and Gifts in Kind


You may contact your Pastor if you wish further information visit:

Gratefully yours in Christ,

+Richard Grecco

Bishop of Charlottetown
