Where There’s a Will, There’s a Way
November 19, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pmFree
Please join Bishop Rickel and end-of-life and legacy planners from the diocese in a workshop focused on creating a legacy of love and hope. The work of attending to the details of pre-planning is a true gift to those you love and care about. It is a gift that also ensures that your wishes are known.
Regardless of your age, assets, or marital status, this foundational seminar will help you. You will learn the basics of will planning and how to be sure that your wishes govern what will happen to your remains, your property, and your most valued possessions. No prior knowledge is assumed or required.
Since the first Book of Common Prayer, Episcopalians have been encouraged to make a will to provide for their families and/or loved ones, and to make bequests for religious and charitable purposes. Planning may also include considerations such as a designated power of attorney (POA), as well as options for end-of-life spiritual care, wakes, burial/inurement, and funeral/memorial services.
At the workshop, clergy members, attorneys, and financial planners will discuss the benefits of pre-planning. Attention will be given to the framework of wills, tools for planning your estate, and preparing for your last chapter of life. Our aim is to provide you with an orientation to wills and set you on a concrete path to prepare, draft, and complete your critical final documents.
