The Diocese of Raleigh Catholic Heritage Society was created in 1998 to honor the Christian generosity of those who have invested in the future of the Diocese or any of parishes, schools or Diocesan ministries through a bequest in their Will or some other form of planned gift, such as a Charitable Gift Annuity or Trust.
In 2013, the Catholic Heritage Society was renamed the Fr. Thomas F. Price Catholic Heritage Society to honor Father Price and the many wonderful works he helped to establish and/or contributed to during his lifetime. The Foundation of the Diocese of Raleigh assumed coordination and promotion of the Society in 2019. Fr. Price Society members have a keen interest in preserving and advancing the mission of the Church well into the future.
By becoming a member of the Fr. Thomas F. Price Catholic Heritage Society, you give the Bishop of Raleigh and The Foundation the privilege of recognizing you for your Generous investment in the most important work of continuing the mission of Jesus Christ on earth.
