Planned Giving



St. Joseph the Worker Legacy Society


St Joseph the Worker Legacy Society was formed to honor the individuals and families that have made long term commitments to Young Catholic Professionals through plan gifts such as bequests or beneficiary designations at retirement plans.

This support can be ultimately expressed in many ways. For example, you can make your gift to The Catholic Foundation for the benefit of the Young Catholic Professionals Endowment Fund, to the organization directly, or establish your own endowment to support a specific need at Young Catholic Professionals.

If you have already arranged for a gift from your own estate or retirement plan for the benefit of Young Catholic Professionals and want to be part of our Legacy Society, please phone or email Joe Griesbauer at 636-295-1199 or Or to contact The Catholic Foundation, reach out to Darina Padian, Michael George or Elizabeth Murray at 972-661-9792.


St. Joseph the Worker Prayer

Joseph, by the work of your hands and the sweat of your brow

you supported Jesus and Mary,

and had the Son of God as your fellow worker.

Teach me to work as you did with patience and perseverance,

for God and for those whom God has given me to support.

Teach me to see in my fellow workers, the Christ who desires to be in them,

that I may always be charitable and forbearing towards all grant me

to look upon work with the eyes of faith, so that

I shall recognize it in my share and God's own creative activity

 and in God's work of our redemption.

When it is pleasant and productive, remind me to give thanks to God for it,

and when it is burdensome, teach me to offer it to God

and for reparation for my sins and the sins of the world.
