Members of the Heritage Society understand the importance of passing on the legacy of our Catholic faith to the next generation. By making plans for a bequest or other future gift to strengthen the ministries of the Diocese of the Cleveland, these dedicated Catholics inspire others to help build God’s kingdom on earth.
