To make a planned gift to Saint Joseph’s Oratory of Mount Royal is to believe in the mission of Saint Brother André and to contribute to the Oratory’s development.

Whether it forms part of your financial, tax or estate planning, making a planned gift demonstrates a heartfelt commitment on your part. It is also an important way of helping the shrine continue its mission for future generations. This is an approach to consider, regardless of your financial wealth.

While donations to our annual campaign are still very important in meeting the Oratory’s immediate needs, planned giving supports the sustainability and continuity of this institution.

Making a planned gift is a gesture that helps build the future… wisely !
