Lumen Christi Legacy Society


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.

The Lumen Christi Legacy Society was established to recognize and thank supporters who have named the Foundation or a Catholic entity of the Diocese of Richmond in their estate plans or established a named-donor fund with the Catholic Community Foundation.  Members of the Lumen Christi Legacy Society are led by their faith and values to preserve our Catholic heritage and ensure everlasting giving for the future. This is a witness to fulfilling our call to walk in the Light of Christ and create a legacy that lights the future.

Special Recognition:

  • Keepsake Photograph with Bishop Knestout
  • Lumen Christi Legacy Society lapel pin
