By establishing a parish endowment through the Catholic Community Fund, Sacred Heart Parish in Manchester-by-the-Sea is helping ensure their beloved church thrives for years to come.
The Sacred Heart Memorial Endowment Fund, originally spearheaded by Theresa Conway, Vice President of the Sacred Heart Parish Finance Council, gained traction when the council was connected to the Catholic Community Fund.
The fund assists in supporting current operating expenses and will provide resources for future parishioners as it continues to grow. Interest from these donations is currently reinvested to help build the fund’s value for future distributions. In addition, parishioners can honor the memory of their loved ones by making a donation in their name. Ms. Conway notes, “This fund helps us build the future of our parish. Not only are donations held in perpetuity, but so, too, are the memorials established in memory of loved ones.”
