Bishop’s Appeal Exceeds $5.25 Million

Recently, Pope Francis reminded us the Beatitudes are “the program of life that Jesus offers us.”  He said people should remember the “protocol by which we will be judged” – by what everyone has done or didn’t do for others.  We should always strive to help the poor in spirit, those who mourn, and the meek.Pope Francis blesses faithful

Through the  Bishop’s Appeal, we raise people up and help them.  It is with great appreciation we can say $5.25  million has been raised this year from more than 30,000 donors. These gifts directly impact the ministries and services of the Diocese of Green Bay.

Your gift helps show mercy to others, to reach out in kindness and lend a helping hand.  Thank you for your support of the Bishop’s Appeal.

If you have not made your gift please consider giving today.

Foundation supports the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help

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.

The Catholic Foundation assists the Shrine by doing an annual fundraising campaign, encouraging people to establish endowments that benefit the Shrine and by helping people leave a legacy by remembering the Shrine in their wills and estates. To help the Shrine today, please consider making a gift.

If you would like more information on how you may leave a legacy to support the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help, your parish or other ministries and programs in the Diocese of Green Bay, please contact Cindi Brawner at 920-272-8173 or Josh Diedrich at 920-272-8197.

Impacting Lives for more than Fifteen Years

Since its founding in 1997, the Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Green Bay has distributed more than $19,000,000 to support Church ministries and services for the spiritual, educational, and social needs of
God’s people.

We can help you:

  • Make a gift that immediately makes a difference
  • Make a gift that both gives you a life income and helps others
  • Make a gift that will help others later through deferred giving
  • Make a gift to a new or existing fund that
    benefits a parish or ministry

Whether you are interested in assisting a ministry of the Church, educating our seminarians, remembering the Church in your will, helping your parish or the Church in many other ways bring Christ to thousands of people throughout Northeastern Wisconsin, the Catholic Foundation can assist you.

Each gift helps. Thank you on behalf of everyone you are assisting.
