Legacy Planning: Christmas Season Giving

Posted on December 18, 2022 by Published by

During this most holy season, rejoice in the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. As stewards of our faith, please continue his good work on earth by considering a gift through your will or a planned gift in support of our Church. A bequest can be made to our parish using the following language:

“I give [insert specific dollar amount, or percentage of net or residuary] to The Catholic Bishop of Chicago, Tax ID #36-2170826, a corporation sole located in Chicago, Illinois, to be used for the benefit of Our Lady of the Wayside (OLW) parish located in Arlington Heights, Illinois. However, if OLW ceases to exist in its current form, then to the new parish or parishes erected in its stead.”

Please consult an attorney and financial advisor when drafting your will or trust. For more information, please visit or contact Ewelina Sokolowski, Operations Director, at 224.518.1774 or by email at
