Suggestions for Restricted Bequests

Here are some suggestions for a making a restricted bequest to Pacem in Terris:

Annual Operating Needs: The annual operating budget at Pacem in Terris enables us to fulfill our mission to ensure that daily, week after week, people of all faiths can come to the silence and solitude of a hermitage and deepen their relationship with God. The budget needs include  expenses such as utilities, building and land maintenance, staffing, food, and hermitage supplies.

Financial Aid for Hermits: It is our commitment at Pacem in Terris that all who desire solitude with God may come without financial impediment. You can assist individuals who could not otherwise afford a retreat–college students, seminarians, clergy, and people on the front lines of human service work who benefit greatly from time spent in solitude and prayer. They emerge spiritually renewed, rested and rejuvenated and in turn impact others they serve in the community.

Capital Needs: The existing structures of Pacem in Terris, including the hermitages, Our Lady of Pacem community house and other buildings are essential to our ministry. Careful stewardship of God’s gifts requires an ongoing investment in major repairs for the buildings, grounds, roads, trails equipment replacement and the vehicles necessary for guest care. As we grow, God may call us to expand our ministry with additional hermitages.

The Legacy Fund: Bequests to The Legacy Fund can be directed to either the Endowment Fund or the Development Fund. Interest from the Endowment Fund will be used to close the gap between the growing costs of providing a hermitage experience and the amount hermits are able to afford. Bequests to the Development Fund will provide for additional hermitages, pretection of the environment, staff growth and other capital expenditures. Click here to learn more about the Legacy Fund.
