The Lisieux Legacy Society

Together, All Things Are Possible

1 Corinthians 12:14 says, "For the body does not consist of one member but of many." Indeed, when we join together, we make great things possible.

Join Us in Our Mission

The Lisieux Legacy Society recognizes those who have made a planned gift to FOCUS, typically by including FOCUS as a beneficiary in their will, trust or estate plans. As a member of the Lisieux Legacy Society, you join others like you in supporting our efforts to build a faith-based foundation among today’s college students.

About the Lisieux Legacy Society

Named after the village where St. Thérèse of Lisieux lived as a Carmelite nun, the Lisieux Legacy Society is inspired by Thérèse’s parents: St. Louis Martin and St. Marie-Azélie (Zélie) Guérin Martin, who gave everything they had to God—their time, talents and even their children, who all entered religious life. The Lisieux Legacy Society is made up of people who, like Sts. Louis and Zélie Martin, give generously to God out of their love for Him and the desire to win souls for Christ.

To Thank Members, We Extend These Benefits:

  • Devotions and Masses for you, for your family and for intentions close to your heart
  • Invitations to annual gathering and FOCUS national conferences
  • Recognition in our FOCUS annual report (unless you prefer to remain anonymous)

If you would like to join the Lisieux Legacy Society and plan to include us in your estate plan, we would like to thank you and answer any questions you have. Please contact Joseph Shippee at 515-490-3411 or
