Saint Lawrence of Brindisi Society

Beginning in December 2014, those who notify the AMS that they have included the AMS in their will or estate plans will be lifetime members of the Saint Lawrence of Brindisi Donor Recognition Society.

Saint Lawrence was canonized by Pope Leo XIII in 1881 and declared a Doctor of the Church by Saint John XXIII in 1959. Born Giulio Cesare Russo in 1559 in Brindisi, a town located on the Adriatic coast of the heel of Italy, Saint Lawrence is the only Capuchin to be honored as a Doctor. During his years of ministry Saint Lawrence served as a chaplain to the forces at Lepanto and a papal emissary and peacemaker.
