Members of the St. Joseph Legacy Society make an extraordinary commitment to ensuring that the Fund for Vocations can continue its mission of building up the Church by unlocking more faithful vocations to religous life.
An annual Mass is offered for St. Joseph Legacy Society members, both living and deceased, by the Dominican Sisters at the Nashville motherhouse of St. Cecelia, and members will be perpetually remembered by our grant recipients. St. Joseph Legacy Society members have the consolation of knowing that their generosity will produce good and faithful servants who will touch countless lives with the Truth and Grace of Christ.
