Tribute Gifts

Memorial Gifts

The loss of a family member or a friend can be a painful experience that can be lessened by the support of caring individuals who take the time to tell you how that person made a difference in their life. Many of us recognize certain special days like Memorial Day and All Souls Day, as a time to remember those who have gone before us marked with the sign of faith. You can help perpetuate the memory of a loved one by making a gift in his or her memory through our Tributes program. We also have opportunities for various memorial markers on our grounds that offer a lasting tribute to your loved one. For more information contact Director of Development, Harold D. "Sam" Samorian Jr., at 757-229-3631 ext. 2315 or send an email

Gifts in Honor

May is also a time for many special occasions- weddings, graduations and other events that bring families together to honor accomplishments and achievements. You may wish to consider making a gift in their honor. Our parish offers you a way to honor someone who has been important to you by posting your loving tribute to them. Your gifts can be used in our ministries as we respond to our call to be 'disciples who form disciples'.
