Catholic Heritage Society members honored for having established legacy gifts
CHARLOTTE — Members of the Catholic Heritage Society were recently honored at a special Mass and dinner at St. Patrick Cathedral in Charlotte. Approximately 60 people attended the Oct. 14 event. Three members who are in their 90s were especially recognized: Dr. William Rabil, Edith Quave and Ismini Frieser, pictured with Bishop Peter J. Jugis.
The Catholic Heritage Society was established in 1994 to recognize all those who have indicated their intention to include gifts through their wills and estate plans to a parish, Catholic school, the Diocese of Charlotte, the Diocese of Charlotte Foundation, or other Catholic organization in the diocese.
Some of these planned gifts have been designated to endowments in the diocesan foundation. The diocesan foundation currently has 206 endowments, totaling more than $20 million in assets. Contributions to an endowment may be designated for a specific purpose – for example, to a parish or school, or for seminarian education.
