The Catholic Church of Long Island honors every planned gift donor with membership in the Patronus Society. We invite you to become a member of the Patronus Society, created exclusively to honor and recognize people who have helped to continue our lifesaving work through a gift to their Parish or other ministry of the Church, in their wills, trusts or estate plans. As a Patronus Society member, you'll receive a certificate of appreciation and be invited to a special annual recognition breakfast. Your gift can be recognized publicly, unless you prefer to give anonymously. The society also provides information and assistance to donors considering a planned gift.
