The Archbishop Joseph MacNeil Society is a recognition program for persons who arrange for planned gifts for the Foundation of St. Joseph Seminary and Newman Theological College, the St. Joseph Priests' Foundation of Edmonton and/or the Catholic Archdiocese of Edmonton. Membership in the Society is honorary, and there are no fees attached.
Benefits of Membership
Members are invited to an annual special Mass and luncheon. At the first luncheon after a benefactor notifies the Archdiocese of their planned gift, they are presented with a Certificate of Membership by Most Rev. Joseph MacNeil, Archbishop Emeritus of Edmonton. In subsequent years, all members are invited to join us in welcoming and celebrating new members. Membership continues in perpetuity, and there are no fees involved. It is simply our way of saying thanks to you for your generosity.
Four additional masses are celebrated annually for the intentions of Society members and their families. With the permission of the member, their name and year of admission is added to a special donor board for the Archbishop Joseph MacNeil Society..
