The Lisieux Legacy Society

The Lisieux Legacy Society recognizes those who have made a planned gift to FOCUS, typically by including FOCUS as a beneficiary in their will, trust or estate plans. Named after the village where St. Thérèse of Lisieux lived as a Carmelite nun, the Lisieux Legacy Society is inspired by Thérèse’s parents: St. Louis Martin and St. Marie-Azélie (Zélie) Guérin Martin, who gave everything they had to God—their time, talents and even their children, who all entered religious life. The Lisieux Legacy Society is made up of people who, like Sts. Louis and Zélie Martin, give generously to God out of their love for Him and the desire to win souls for Christ.

Share Your Legacy

Please let us know if you've already included a gift for FOCUS. Providing us with documentation is the best way to ensure that your gift is used in the way you intend.
