Welcome to Presentation
Set as a beacon on a hill to surrounding Maplewood and the east side of St. Paul, the Church of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary has been a center of Catholic faith and life since 1946. Our parish continues to be a vibrant place of worship, education, and outreach to the community. We welcome you to join us as we celebrate God’s many gifts and strive to bring the gospel message of Jesus Christ to the world around us.
The Presentation Legacy Foundation
Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary is in the process of establishing this Legacy Foundation to provide an ongoing source of income to support its mission for generations to come. Gifts are held in perpetuity in an endowment fund with the Catholic Community Foundation with only the endowment income distributed to Presentation for its future needs. Having the endowment held by a separate institution, the funds should be protected from any possible litigation or action of creditors against the parish, and are also protected against possible misuse by future parish leaders to solve short-term financial problems. In short, gifts to the Legacy Foundation will last forever.
The Presentation Legacy is currently seeking Founders gifts between now and June 30, 2013. Please consider becoming a Founder ($2,000 or more) and long be remembered as helping to start something very important for the life of our parish. Others may consider becoming a Benefactor ($1,000 or more) anytime, or offering a special memorial gift (“In Loving Memory of…”); any memorial over $1,000 will be recognized on the Foundation sign.
Also, please consider designating the Presentation Legacy Foundation in your will, making of your gifts a lasting legacy for our parish. Click HERE for more information.
