Introducing the Bishop Wright Society
November 13, 2020, 10:00 AM

Dear Brothers and Sisters of St. Andrew's,

St. Andrew's now has a legacy society for those who have made provision for the church in their estate plans:

The Bishop Wright Society.

The Rt. Rev. Carl Wright, Bishop Suffragan for Armed Forces and Federal Ministries of The Episcopal Church, served as the sixth Rector of St. Andrew's before he was called to his current role. In addition to permitting us to name it after him, Bp. Carl has enrolled as a Charter Member of the Bishop Wright Society. To join the Bishop Wright Society, simply tell the Priest or the Treasurer that you have made provision for the church in your estate plans. No documentation or detailed information is required. All who join by Pentecost 2021 (May 23rd) will be listed as Charter Members on the plaque that will be hung in the Narthex. Planned giving is not just for wealthy people; it's for anyone who wants to help support the long-term ministry that God has called us to here in Pasadena. You can direct gifts of money, securities, or other property to the church in your will, and/or designate the church as the beneficiary of an annuity or insurance policy. Be sure to work with a qualified financial professional or attorney to ensure that your wishes are properly memorialized.
