Consider a Gift of Real Estate


If you’ve lost interest in home maintenance, grown tired of paying property taxes on a vacation home you no longer use, or need only a portion of the living space you currently own, you may be ready to make a move. But before you summon the energy to put your home on the market, think about a charitable gift.

If you would like to help fulfill our mission, your property can open the door to a unique giving opportunity: Donate the property to the Diocese of Baton Rouge, either now or whenever you no longer need it. You can give the property to us now, retain the use of it for life, give us partial use, place it in trust, or offer it as a bequest in your will.

    Bruised, But Not Broken

    Successful modern horse trainers think it unfortunate that the various stages involved in training a horse are often known as horse breaking. The act of breaking a horse in a far gentler manner than that suggested by the term might surprise some. Because horses have long been essential contributors to commerce, transportation and warfare, historic documents related to

  • Increase the Valuable

    In a recent magazine article, one author wrote of her children and their fondness for electronic gifts. Over the years, she’s found them inevitably expensive and soon obsolete. Last year’s gadgets fill drawers and boxes, replaced by this year’s preferences. To a degree, it’s equally true for adults, and discovering a gift of lasting value can be a rare find. The writer made such a discovery, however, when she purchased a twenty-dollar tree swing for her

  • A Call to a Resource-full People

    By definition, a cornucopia is a symbol of considerable blessing, a cone-shaped container overflowing with the fruits of abundant harvest. Such a centerpiece often adorns the grand display of blessing found within a typical American Thanksgiving dining room. There is much to be thankful for, including the very resources used to create meals of which much of the world can only dream. God has allowed us to produce and harness much of the globe’s natural

  • Childlike Faith

    Little Amy likes to climb. Barely two, she’s very agile, and her parents are forever finding her giggling at their eye level—from the back of the sofa, atop the desk, or standing on a chair. Each time, they scold her and admonish her never to do it again. But Amy is a fairly typical toddler. She’s yet to fall, so she has no sense of the potential for pain and injury that concerns her parents. They’ll hear her, and turn just in time to reach out as

  • Of Use to One Worthy of Worship

    In the prophecy of Isaiah we find excellent examples of the descriptive and poetic language so typical of the major Old Testament prophets. For many students, a favorite metaphor is that of a potter and the chosen medium, the clay. “Woe to him who contends with his Maker; a potsherd among potsherds of the earth! Dare the clay say to its modeler, ‘What are you doing?’ “Your perversity is as though the potter were taken to be the clay: As though what is made
