Spiritual Legacy Series: Writing a Love Letter from the Heart

What is it?

      A legacy letter is a way to share your values, blessings, life’s lessons, hopes, and dreams for the future with your family, friends, and community.  It is a heartfelt expression of what truly matters in your life.

 Why write a legacy letter?

  • To help identify what you value most and what you stand for
  • To provide a sense of completion in your lives
  • To allow your “stories” to live on
  • To leave something valuable behind

 How can I write one?

            Attend the 3-part series sponsored by the Retreat Center and Catholic Women in Action, a committee of The Catholic Foundation of the Archdiocese of New Orleans. The presenter is Jim Adams, CFP, CAP, a member of the Catholic Foundation’s Professional Advisors Council and a professional who integrates his faith into his practice.

 When is the seminar?

            New Rescheduled Dates!  Mark your calendars for the evenings of August 31, September 7, and September 14, 5:30pm - 7:00pm.

            A light dinner will be provided.
