Give in Honor of Those You Love

Are you looking for a way to honor a loved one on a special occasion? Consider a tribute gift to Catholic Extension. Support the Catholic Church in America and designate your gift in honor or memory of someone you love.

Mass Intention

Request a Mass intention in honor or memory of a loved one. For a suggested gift of $15, a priest in one of the Catholic Extension-supported mission dioceses will remember your intention as he celebrates the liturgy.

Book of Blessings

Designate a gift of $500 or more toward seminary education in honor of a loved one. Their name will then be inscribed in a Book of Blessings and presented to a Catholic Extension supported seminarian upon his ordination. This Catholic Extension tradition connects seminarians from mission dioceses with our donors by providing them with a gift that they can use in their ministry—a liturgical resource filled with prayers and blessings for every occasion.

Memorial Plaque

Designate a gift of $2,500 or more toward the building of a church or religious education center in honor or memory of a loved one. When construction is completed, a plaque with the name of your loved one will be prominently displayed in the facility to garner the prayers of those whose lives have been touched by your generosity.
