Legacy Society to be honored at Mass
GREENSBURG – OCTOBER 31, 2022 – Bishop Larry J. Kulick will celebrate an Appreciation Mass for members of the Our Lady of the Assumption Legacy Society Nov. 6 at 11 a.m. at Blessed Sacrament Cathedral.
The Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Greensburg provides special recognition and gratitude for those who have who have named their parish, Catholic School, Catholic Charities or the Diocese of Greensburg as a beneficiary in their will or trust, retirement account, charitable gift annuity or charitable trust, life insurance policy, or through the establishment of an endowed fund. With their gift, they are inducted into the Our Lady of the Assumption Legacy Society.
“The Appreciation Mass is especially significant because Bishop Kulick is celebrating it in November, which is All Souls Month,” said Holly DiCesare, Director of the Catholic Foundation. “Each member of the society has been invited by the Bishop to the Mass, and they will be able to provide the name of their deceased loved one to be remembered during this Mass.”
Members of the society are presented with a symbolic pin that features the artwork of the Assumption mural at Blessed Sacrament Cathedral. In appreciation, members will be presented with a Christmas ornament featuring the same artwork.
“The Our Lady of the Assumption Legacy Society provides an opportunity for benefactors to make their philanthropy a perpetual legacy for themselves and an example for their families to follow,” DiCesare said. “It also creates a means of support that makes our parishes and ministries stronger, sustainable and better equipped to spread the Gospel and the love of Jesus Christ for generations to come.”
The Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Greensburg serves as the philanthropic arm of the Diocese, developing and implementing fundraising initiatives, including endowments and planned giving, as well as offering development support to parishes and Catholic schools through our partner program.
