We created this Catholic Legacy Resources page just for you and our prayer and hope is that you will use these resources to pass on your Catholic values and traditions to your children and grandchildren. We are reminded to share these stories of our journey of faith, love and God’s greatness in Psalms 78:4 “We do not keep them from our children; we recount them to the next generation, the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD and his strength, the wonders that he performed.”
We invite you to do this with the tools we created:
- Catholic Legacy Journal
- Guide to Creating Your Catholic Legacy Video
- Create A Family Mission Statement Guide
- Catholic Declaration on Life and Death (Living Will/Health Surrogate) and Understanding the Catholic Declaration on Life and Death
- Picture Your Catholic Legacy Exercise (below)
Together, these will help you to reflect on and best articulate your story, as well as your values, to share with your children and grandchildren.
Be sure to share your completed Catholic legacy items and stories with your family, professional advisors, and include it as part of your family culture and legacy. May God continue to bless you and your family.
If you have any questions, contact Madelyn T. Weed, Chief Donor Services Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org or (407) 246-7188.
Picture Your Catholic Legacy Exercise
Many years of research show that images can help remind you of the stories from your youth, stories of faith and family. We invite you to watch the Picture Your Catholic Legacy Video and review the gallery below that can help us reflect upon what is important to us and most reflects our lives. We hope these images help you reflect upon your life and all the blessings that God has bestowed upon you, and invite you to use the Picture Your Catholic Legacy Worksheet to get started.
