Bishop’s Appeal Reaches $ 5 Million

Pope Francis reminds us the Beatitudes are “the program of life that Jesus offers us.”  2015 BA-Poster-FB
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.

Through the Bishop’s Appeal, we are Building Disciples of Christ.  It is with great appreciation we can say $ 5 million has been raised from more than 28,000 donors.  These gifts directly impact the ministries and services provided by the Diocese of Green Bay.  More importantly, gifts help people see the face of Jesus.

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