REMSEN - Remsen St. Mary’s Church received a generous bequest from Phyllis Wolf in the amount of $25,000. Phyllis passed away on July 28, 2021. She was a member of the church for many years and was loved by so many. “Our parish is blessed to have had such a special place in Phyllis’ heart. We will forever be grateful,” said Sarah Garvin.

According to Phyllis’ children, “St. Mary’s Church was central to our mother’s life, and it was important to her to contribute to its future.”

“Any time that a parishioner leaves a bequest from one’s estate for the parish only affirms the importance of the parish community to the person. St. Mary’s parish is very grateful, and Phyllis’ generosity will be remembered for years to come. Psalm 145:4 says it best, one generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts,” said Father Tim Pick.
