Supporting the Church in Catholic Legacy Week

This week is Catholic Legacy Week. Wills and legacies are an important way to fund the work of the Church throughout the world.

Having just celebrated Pentecost, when we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit, this year Catholics are being asked: What will be your gift to the world?

Visit  and see how you a legacy can support a charity of your choice. You will also find a will-writing guide there.

Could you help?

Perhaps you would like to help fund the education of a seminarian in our Archdiocese? It takes seven years to train a priest.

Or maybe you want to support our retired priests? After a lifetime of service to the Church, they should benefit from a safe & warm home, or have support if they are suffering from ill health.

You may decide to support your own parish; many church buildings need to adapt to a world of rising energy costs amd invest in heating, lighting and making buildings watertight and energy efficient.

In coming weeks we will be sharing information about legacies and wills on the Archdiocesan website.

If you would like to receive an information pack about legacies when it is produced please email
