1st Annual Lumen Christi Legacy Society Mass & Dinner

The Catholic Community Foundation of the Diocese of Richmond held its first Lumen Christi Legacy Society Mass and Dinner at the Pastoral Center in Richmond on November 20th.  This special event recognized and thanked individuals who have named their parish and the Church in their estate plans.  With 103 founding members of this Society, we are grateful for their generosity and lasting gift of faith. 

Bishop Knestout celebrated Mass and joined couples and individuals for dinner and gifted each with a Lumen Christi Legacy Society lapel pin.  “Each of you here this evening is a witness to fulfilling our call to walk in the Light of Christ and are led by your faith and values to preserve our Catholic heritage and ensure everlasting giving for the future,” stated Bishop Knestout. You can see the lovely photos from the evening here.

Lumen Christi means “Light of Christ” which is the light in all things, which gives life to all things, which is the law by which all things are governed. This power is an influence for good in the lives of all people, and members of the Lumen Christi Legacy Society share in this purpose.
