Videos on Estate Planning and Planned Giving


In 2018, the Archdiocese of Saint Boniface formed a committee of experts in estate planning, accounting, and financial planning to discuss questions of estate planning and planned giving, with the intention of preparing useful resources for the Archdiocese, its parishes, and Catholics in general. Among other documents, the committee comprised of Mr. Marc Marion, Mr. Jean-Paul Gobeil, Ms. Suzanne Munroe, Mr. Ronald Delaquis, Ms. Roxana Mazur, Mr. Richard Fréchette and Ms. Gisèle Barnabé, put together a presentation that was offered as a pilot project in five parishes in the Fall of 2019. Other parishes were hoping to host the presentation in 2020, but the project has been halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We had to find another way! The result is a series of five videos.
