Have you reached age 70½? Do you have a traditional IRA account? Then you know you have to take what’s called a “Required Minimum Distribution” or RMD each year, and it’s taxable to you.

Now there’s a way to send your RMD to the Church, which meets both the IRS requirements and your charitable giving plans to the Church. An added bonus – the distribution is not taxable to you.

To learn more, contact Jeanne Saarinen at The Foundation for the Diocese of Helena, Inc., (406) 389-7051,
jsaarinen@diocesehelena.org or visit www.fdoh.org. If you’re a do-it-yourselfer, simply google “IRA Charitable Rollover” for a plethora of information.

Your Catholic Foundation’s mission is to serve and strengthen the people, parishes, ministries, and apostolic mission of the Diocese of Helena. Learn more at www.fdoh.org.

Call to Action

From November 2019 until Spring 2020, while the U.S. Supreme Court deliberates, it is vital that we encourage Congress to act to provide DACA recipients with a path to citizenship. As the House passed H.R. 6 which includes a path to citizenship for DACA recipients, we ask that you turn your attention to Senators Tester and Daines and urge them to stand in support of young adult immigrants by supporting legislative protection for DACA recipients generally and the Dream Act of 2019, S. 874, specifically.

Background
H.R. 6 would provide critical permanent legal protection to DACA recipients, TPS and DED holders who are living in a state of uncertainty and fear. The USCCB's Committee on Migration Chairman, Bishop Joe S. Vásquez of Austin, Texas, has voiced support for the bill numerous times: issuing a March 15, 2019 statement endorsing H.R. 6, sending a letter to each Member of the U.S. House of Representatives in support of the bill, and endorsing individual component bills of H.R. 6 prior to markup in the House Judiciary Committee on May 22, 2019.
 
Action
While the House passed its version of the Dream Act, we ask you to stand in solidarity with immigrants and their families by sending a message to Senators Tester and Daines and request that they support S.874, the Dream Act of 2019.

Recently, the public learned that an abortion doctor hoarded the bodies of his victims, keeping them in bags in his home and car. Tragically, Ulrich Klopfer is not the first person involved in abortion to blatantly disregard normal human respect for the dead. While we may easily grasp that abortion leads to the total denial of dignity to these babies, even in death, some supporters of legal abortion are also troubled by the actions of Dr. Klopfer. Respectful treatment of the dead is practiced by every culture and every religion and is ingrained in our psyche as human beings. Even legalized abortion hasn’t totally erased the feeling that these “products of conception” are human, deserving of more care than being thrown in biohazard bags, flushed down toilets, or put in the trash.

In response to the revelation of thousands of aborted babies found in the home of the late Ulrich Klopfer, Members of Congress introduced the “Dignity for Aborted Children Act” which requires that the bodies of aborted babies be treated with respect like other deceased human bodies, and either be buried or cremated. 

Archbishop Naumann sent a 
letter to the Senate and House urging support and passage of this bill.  Please join him and send your message of support today! There is no reason that anyone should deny basic respect to human remains.

Please click the link below to send your message to Senators Tester and Daines and Representative Gianforte asking them to support this bill.

Dear brothers and sister in Christ,

If you receive a text, email, message or other form of communication

saying, I need money, assistance or other items,

PLEASE, disregard.

When the diocese was hacked, unknown individual(s) got the priests' information and is using it fraudulently!
