Leaving a Legacy at Holy Name
Pay it forward with a gift that helps the future endure
After over 100 years as a cornerstone of the Catholic faith in Indianapolis, Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church is in the midst of a remarkable rebirth, with a growing population of young families, increasing school enrollment and a firmer financial foundation. We are now in a position to look to the future of Holy Name into the 21st century and beyond.
But we need your help to succeed. The changes in the economy have been felt by all parishioners, especially the young families that are fueling our growth. All of us—including the parish—have learned to be more mindful of budgets by cutting costs and becoming better financial stewards. As we continue to plan for the future of Holy Name, our watchword is long-term sustainability. That’s why we ask for your consideration in including Holy Name in your estate planning to create a lasting legacy that will benefit generations to come.
You don’t have to be wealthy to make a difference
A simple way to ensure the future of our parish is to include Holy Name in your will. Legacy gifts of all sizes play an invaluable role in the long-term sustainability of our parish.
By bequeathing a gift—whether financial assets or personal property—you leave a very special legacy. After you’ve taken care of your family in your will, you might also remember your parish family with a donation. Large or small, every gift is welcome. And every gift helps.

The Monsignor Killian Legacy Society
We have established a Legacy Wall in the narthex which will honor parishioners that leave legacy gifts to Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church. It is our hope that this wall will grow as future generations experience the beauty and love of our parish.
Engraved names of those leaving legacy gifts to Holy Name will be perpetually displayed so that we may remember them, honor their commitment to Holy Name, and pray for their souls.
There are two ways for a benefactor’s name to be placed on the Legacy Wall:
• Leaving a legacy gift to Holy Name in your will
• A one-time gift to Holy Name in the amount of $5,000 or more
