Saint Mary of the Lake Legacy Society

Membership in the Saint Mary of the Lake Legacy Society is reserved for those who have made a gift to the Seminary in their estate plans. Such gifts help ensure the future of Saint Mary of the Lake/Mundelein Seminary and provide a foundation for the education and formation of seminarians who will one day lead our holy Church as priests of Jesus Christ.

Gifts through one’s estate plan include bequests through one’s will or living trust, charitable gift annuities, beneficial designations in one’s life insurance or retirement accounts (IRA), charitable trusts, or interests in real estate.

The benefits accorded to members of the Saint Mary of the Lake Legacy Society include a perpetual remembrance in the daily Masses and prayers offered by the seminary community, the inscription of one’s name in the Society’s Book of Honor, reserved seating at special events, and a private invitation to the annual Society reception hosted by the Rector.

If you have made a commitment to Saint Mary of the Lake/Mundelein Seminary in your estate plans, please let us know; it would be our honor to enroll you in the Saint Mary of the Lake Legacy Society. You may contact Harve Schlachter, Director of Planned Gifts, at (847) 970-4952 or at hschlachter@usml.edu.

God bless you for your generosity.


Very Rev. Robert Barron
Rector/President
