This time of year serves as a reminder to set our intentions and reflect on what matters most, but also to care for ourselves and our families in the year ahead. Creating a will is a powerful way for you to get peace of mind and steward the resources God has blessed you with.
Think of this resource as a gift to yourself after a bustling holiday season. Creating a will is one thoughtful action that puts you one step closer to achieving your goals, taking care of you and your family, and finding peace of mind.
This important life step provides you the opportunity to create a will that protects the people you love, stewards your resources, and passes your Catholic faith on to future generations.
Thinking about what’s included in your estate can feel confusing, but it’s essentially everything you own — like your car, or even your pets. This willplanning tool is available for you to take this important step to plan your future.
Creating a bequest in your will is a powerful statement and costs you nothing today. If you’ve supported St. Catherine of Sienna in the past, a bequest can advance the good works of our Catholic faith for generations, while being a part of your lasting legacy.
A charitable bequest creates a foundation for the future. Our work today is important, but it is equally, if not more, important to be sure that St. Catherine of Sienna can continue well into the future.
We’re excited to share FreeWill with you as a way to create a will. This tool allows you to write a legally valid will online or a plan to take to an attorney completely for free, and it only takes 20 minutes to complete.

If you don’t have a will or your will needs an update, you can complete the process with an up-to-date will that protects your loved ones and assets, in addition to providing for your Church.
FreeWill can also be used for more complicated plans by generating a list of documented wishes that can be brought to an attorney for completion.
