The transfer of gifts from a probate, trust, annuity,
or insurance policy to the archdiocese or a parish or school involves
legal transfer of title. The Office of the Legal Counsel will coordinate the signings of the legal documents to insure proper transfer. Generally this will require signatures from the archbishop; his
attorney-in-fact, the moderator of the curia/vicar general; or the
appropriate officer of the other corporation, such as Catholic Charities of Los Angeles Inc. It is important
to note that generally the pastor's or principal's signature will not
be legally sufficient.
