Catholic education gets a boost from the Appeal!
Bishop's Appeal 2013 has raised more than $4,914,000 toward our $5,100,000 goal. The Appeal supports vital ministries. One that receives significant support is the diocesan Education Department.
For thousands of kids, going to religious education at their parish is a chance to develop a deeper relationship with Jesus. These kids are taught by faith-filled educators who have been given quality tools to do the job of teaching our young people. At the center of creating these tools is the diocesan Education Department.
If you have not made a gift to the Bishop's Appeal, please prayerfully consider the impact it has on our parishes religious education programs, Catholic schools and communities.

Welcome Pope Francis by Helping Those He Loves Most!"Oh, how I wish for the Church that is poor and for the poor!"
"Our life is a journey, and when we stop moving, things go wrong."
Pope Francis - March 14 and 15, 2013
Our Holy Father has indicated that he wants us to celebrate his inauguration as Pope by performing acts of charity for the poor and those in need. As a concrete act of solidarity, we invite you to see the world as the Pope does – through the eyes of those struggling to make ends meet on a daily basis.
Modeling the Pope’s love for the "least among us" and moving forward on our call to love thy neighbor, the Pontifical Mission Societies and Catholic Relief Services seek your support. To learn more about helping those He loves most click here.

Catholic Foundation helps support the Shrine of Our Lady of Good HelpThe Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help sits quietly in Northeastern Wisconsin, surrounded by dairy farms and rolling cornfields. Seemingly untouched by our modern world, for over 150 years it has been a place where the faithful have come to seek intercession from the Blessed Virgin Mother.
