Estate Planning

Estate Planning Seminars

The Diocese of San Jose is working to establish an Estate Planning Ministry in each of its parishes. An Estate Planning Ministry would consist of approximately 4 to 6 parishioners working with their pastor to set up an annual Estate Planning Seminar.The position of the Catholic Church is that all things come from God and we must act as stewards of God’s gifts. To be true stewards we must pass these gifts on responsibly at the time of our death. The only way to do this is to have a legal Will and Trust in place. Therefore, the Diocese, through the Office of Stewardship and Development, is assisting each parish with developing an Estate Planning Ministry and conducting annual Estate Planning Seminars.
