Planned Giving

The stained glass windows in the Chapel of St. Joseph were designed by the Emil Frei Glass Co. They depict the story of redemption in the main panels, the lives of saints in the upper-circle panels, and the history of the Catholic Church in the St. Louis area in the lower-circle panels. An exterior protection system will be added during the current renovations to help preserve the stained glass.After years of faithful support, you may wish to plan a gift to Kenrick-Glennon Seminary, legally titled The St. Louis Roman Catholic Theological Seminary (Tax ID #35-219-3656), as a personal legacy. When you share God’s blessings with the seminary, you share those blessings with our future priests and all those they will benefit from their priestly ministry. Please ensure that your commitment to our Church extends beyond your lifetime by making a planned gift to the seminary.

The following is a list of ways in which you can contribute:

Wills and Trusts
IRAs / Qualified Retirement Plans / US Savings Bonds
Investments and Property
Gift Annuities and Deferred Gift Annuities
Charitable Remainder Trusts
Charitable Lead Trusts
Life Insurance
