San Damiano Legacy Luncheon and Franciscan Partnership Award

On Saturday, April 6, the second annual San Damiano luncheon was held at Mount St. Francis. At the luncheon, we recognized our benefactors in the Kentuckiana area who have notified us that they have remembered the Province of Our Lady of Consolation in their wills. This enrolls them in the San Damiano Legacy Association.

Corazon Veza M.D., an oncologist in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, received the Franciscan Partnership Award.

During the event, Dr. Corazon Veza M.D., an oncologist in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, received the Franciscan Partnership Award. This award was established by the Province Definitory in 1999 β€œto celebrate our friends for accepting the responsibility of stewardship, and for the number of years they have been sharing their resources not only with our Province but also with other important charities in the community.”

Thank you to all of our friends who partner with us in our Franciscan ministry. It is because of your generous donations, not only financial but also time, talent, and especially prayer, that we are able to follow in St. Francis' footsteps. If you are interested in learning more about remembering the friars in your will, or other donation vehicles such as annuities, please contact the Mission Advancement Office at (812) 923.5250 or email Shaunna Graf at s.graf@franciscansusa.org
