Vivos Christi Society
is our Bishop’s way of celebrating the generosity of Catholic friends who are providing for the future of the Church through a planned gift.  Have you remembered your parish, a Catholic school or a ministry of the Diocese of Orlando in your will or estate plans? If so, Bishop Noonan would welcome the opportunity to honor you as a member.  For more information, contact Casey Schroder at (407) 246-4802 or email


On September 24, 2016, Bishop Noonan welcomed 27 new members into the Vivos Christi Society during the annual Induction Ceremony and Reception, held at St. James Cathedral. Every year new members, continuing members, and the friends and family of posthumous members are invited to join Bishop Noonan for this special event.


Anyone who agrees to make a planned gift to a parish, a Catholic school, or to any other ministry of the Diocese of Orlando is entitled to membership in the Vivos Christi Society. No minimum amount is required. Membership is also open to those who provide for the Church through other planned giving instruments, such as life insurance or a charitable gift annuity.

There is a simple form to complete and provide to the Catholic Foundation of Central Florida.  All information will be held in the strictest confidence. The forms is needed so that our Diocese can maintain an accurate record of who has taken this deeply significant step for Our Lord and His Church.

We have made it very easy for you to complete the form online.
