Leaving a Bequest to your parish or the diocese


Many Catholic diocesan and parish works currently helping those in need in the Hunter region are made possible by bequests.

Each of us finds different ways to make our mark on the world. One way of doing this is by making a bequest. A bequest is a gift left in a will. When you leave a bequest to the Church, you give a gift that lasts longer than your lifetime, a gift that will always be remembered.

Your Bequest provides support to:

  • Your Parish and its needs
  • The Diocese and its valuable programmes including:
    • Ministry
    • Chaplaincy
    • Faith Development
    • Social Justice
    • Priests and Seminarians
