The Catholic Heritage Society was established by Bishop Guglielmone in 2017 as a way to honor the generosity of individuals who are providing for the future of the Church by leaving a legacy gift to a parish, school, the diocese, or a specific diocesan ministry. Membership is open to anyone who has made this type of provision through a vehicle such as a will, trust, retirement plan, insurance policy, or annuity no matter the size of the gift.

By making a commitment like this, members are acknowledging the vital role that the Catholic Church has played in their life. They are also helping to ensure that the Church can continue to play an integral role in the lives of others, thereby guaranteeing the faith and all of its blessings will be passed along to future generations.

Members will be recognized in the annual report and in the year-end edition of The Catholic Miscellany. A special Mass and dinner will be held each year to recognize and celebrate Catholic Heritage Society members.

For those who have already made arrangements for a legacy gift but have not yet notified us, please complete the gift notification form at the bottom of the page and return to the Office of Stewardship and Mission Advancement so that we may welcome and recognize you.
