Where there is a Will there is a Way

A Will is a way whereby you can:

  • provide food and accommodation for children
  • support HIV-AIDS sufferers
  • supply pumps, tanks and clean water for a family or a village
  • build a classroom or a health clinic
  • support a student for the priesthood
  • support workers in the Missions

People who leave bequests in their Will to support the Missions are wise investors. Each day they will be remembered in the community prayers of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, as well as the people in the Missions

Why make a bequest?

A bequest in you will is a gift that lives on. It is a way of sharing assets that you may need now, but can spare for worthy causes when you no longer need them.

Bequests to the MSC Mission Office are an outstanding way of financing the good work done by our Missionaries.

It would be very difficult to expand the provision of services without bequests.


A bequest in a Will given out of compassion is like a rose growing in difficult circumstances
