Creating Your Legacy with Sacred Heart Church

Many Catholic parishes face long-term financial challenges today and parishes in Bergen County are not exempt from these challenges. One way to ensure that Sacred Heart continues its mission to serve parishioners in our area is by making a personal bequest (gift) to Sacred Heart in your will. Bequests and legacy gifts provide a lifeline to the future by enabling religious organizations to achieve long-term financial stability and sustainability.

When preparing your estate plan, while considering your personal circumstances and those of your loved ones, please also consider a gift to Sacred Heart. Some examples include:

    • Life insurance or retirement plans
    • Real estate
    • Wills, bequests, trusts
    • Stocks and securities
    • Donor advised funds
    • Gift annuities
    • Charitable trusts

If you are interested in learning more about Planned Giving opportunities, please contact Father Stephen or any Finance Council member. Thank you!



Prayer in Honor of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus

O Lord, Jesus Christ, who has promised that wherever two or three shall be gathered together in Your name You will be there in the midst of them, look down with love and compassion upon us, who are assembled before You, to honor Your Sacred Heart and to make it known and loved by all. Come into the midst of us, O Sweet Jesus, fill our hearts with Your blessings and inflame them with Your love.
