Create Your Legacy with a Bequest
In his 50 years of serving God, Father Gerald Bruggeman gave many people a special gift; the gift of time, sharing it with anyone who needed help.
After retiring as pastor of Corpus Christi Catholic Church in 1994, Father Jerry ministered to patients and families at Penrose-St. Francis Hospital
and other healthcare facilities, offering the Sacraments and comfort.
Father Jerry passed away in 2011 and left two very special gifts in his will. He made a bequest to The Catholic Foundation of the Diocese of Colorado Springs to be used for general good works and also made a bequest to the Priest Retirement Fund through the Diocese of Colorado Springs. Thanks to Father Jerry, these wonderful gifts will benefit many people for generations to come.
