The Catholic Foundation of Central Florida was blessed to organize a Gathering in Gratitude Lenten Pilgrimage on March 22, 2024 on behalf of Bishop Noonan and The Foundation’s Board of Directors. This was a special gathering of those who have returned their blessings to the Lord as endowment fundholders and members of the Corpus Christi, Spes Christi, Vivos Christi, and St. Katharine Drexel Societies.

Graciously hosted by St. John the Evangelist Catholic Community in Viera, Bishop Noonan led the 50 attendees through the Stations of the Cross followed by a Lenten lunch, program and visit to the Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto.

Donors were recognized for their generosity which provides education, faith formation and shelter to the homeless, food for the hungry and medicine for the sick.  It also supports priests in retirement and seminarians who are dedicating their lives to serving us. 

Kimberlee Riley, President of The Catholic Foundation shared, “We are grateful for you and look forward to continuing to walk with you on your philanthropic journeys and serving our community of faith in the year ahead.”
