Angela Ladogana, affectionately known as Angie, was as generous after her passing as she was in life. A St. Raphael parishioner, Angie left an estate gift for her beloved parish; Fr. Tony Celino, JCL, Pastor of St. Raphael, used the thoughtful donation to establish a Named Fund for the church in her memory.
Angie worked tirelessly as a volunteer for numerous organizations, including St. Raphael Parish ministries—Catholic Daughters, ACTS, Eucharistic Minister—loved to decorate the church for Easter and Christmas, supported Jennifer Ann’s Group, and had a passion for the Sisters of Franciscan Missionaries of Mary and the Sisters of Charity. Annual distributions from this fund will help provide Easter and Christmas decorations at St. Raphael Parish.
Endowed funds provide a vehicle through which individuals make outright or planned gifts that will have an everlasting impact on the ministry/parish/school. In time the income generated by the gift will far exceed the original donation.
As a result, endowed funds provide a perpetual, supplemental source of income for such things as the enhancement of programs and ministries, facilities maintenance, scholarships and seminary assistance, priest retirement, etc. Learn more about endowed funds.
