OMAHA, Neb. (CNS) — National Catholic Planned Giving in Omaha will hold a special seminar on the ministry of planned giving in the Phoenix Diocese March 27-29, with the theme of “21st Century Mission and Ministry.”
The 20th anniversary seminar guides and teaches Catholic schools, dioceses, parishes, religious communities, seminaries and agencies about planned giving over three days of sessions at the Hilton Hotel in Mesa, Arizona.
Key topics include the theology and ministry of planned giving, communications, estate planning, how to present wills planning seminars, tax smart stewardship, IRA charitable giving, charitable trusts, gift annuities and a host of other topics.
“We are excited to serve and provide the National Catholic Planned Giving seminar again this year. We look forward to hosting Catholic organizations from throughout the United States,” said Richard Garrigan, executive director of National Catholic Planned Giving.
“While colleges, hospitals and universities are well established in these areas and we salute their work,” Garrigan said in a statement, “planned giving is just as applicable and important to parishes, Catholic schools, high schools, arch/dioceses, religious communities and all Catholic institutions. It is a key part of our future and that is why we are hosting this important seminar.”
Pastors, presidents, newly ordained priests, business managers, development and advancement directors, school principals, planned giving directors, alumni directors, diocesan finance leaders, vicars general, provincials, rectors, alumni/alumnae directors, religious community leadership teams are encouraged to attend.
Garrigan said lay leaders also are encouraged to register, as are members of parish and finance councils and of endowment, foundation, stewardship and alumni boards.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
