Towers of Faith—
Be a Part of the Legacy!

You Are Invited to Become a
Tower of Faith!

The “Towers of Faith ” is a grass-roots movement that has arisen due to the generosity of a number of Parishioners who wanted to ensure that the treasure they would leave behind upon their death would be a sign of life for future generations and a legacy that would continue to support the ministries of St. Thomas More Parish.

The “Towers of Faith” partnership began in 2006 and is now 14 years old and has been a very important financial “piece” that has made possible the construction of our Church and helped to support the many ministerial activities of our Parish.

Since the inception of the “Towers of Faith,” nearly $3 million has been raised: $424,000 directed to our Operations Budget and $2,571,000 for the construction of our Church.

“Towers of Faith” are people who share a common bond of overt generosity and visionary leadership which nourishes the ongoing success of our Parish.

The “Towers of Faith” have included St. Thomas More in their estate planning—through Designated Beneficiary Accounts, Life Insurance, Wills, Living Trusts, Stocks, and Gifts of Property. In some fashion, St. Thomas More is remembered, just as they remember family members and friends!

“Towers of Faith” is an important part of our future support. It helps to ensure that we can confidently move into the future and meet “head-on” the challenges that await us, especially in these days of the pandemic.

It is my hope that you would consider remembering St. Thomas More in your estate planning and become a “Tower of Faith.”

All you need do is include St. Thomas More in your estate planning. There is no minimum amount required. No documents need be reviewed. You simply need to inform us that St. Thomas More is being remembered in your estate planning.

If you would like more information and would like to accept this invitation to be a “Tower of Faith,” please contact me or Ron Briseno, our Business Manager/Director of Development.

We will be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have.
Become a “Tower of Faith” —be a part of the legacy!
