Extraordinary World Mission Month October 2019

Pope Francis asks the whole Church to celebrate the Extraordinary World Mission  month of October 2019.  The theme for this Extraordinary World Mission month is Baptized and Sent: The Church of Christ on Mission in the World.

Celebrating this will help us to rediscover the missionary dimension of our faith in Jesus Christ, a faith graciously bestowed on us in baptism.  We received this gift freely and we share it freely, excluding no one.  The Church on mission in the world enables us to see all with God’s own eyes and heart and to bring love, mercy, hope and sacraments to the ends of the earth.

With generous hearts on World Mission Sunday, please support the work of those who provide loving service and a special moment of encounter with the Pope’s missions throughout the world.  This can be accomplished through prayer, reflection and witness.  Thank you and God bless you!  For more information, contact World Missions at 920.272.8192 or email [email protected]

Foundation supports the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help

Shrine-of-Our-Lady-of-Good-HelpThe National 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 National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help, your parish or other ministries and programs in the Diocese of Green Bay, please contact Josh Diedrich at 920-272-8197 or Cindi Brawner at 920-272-8173.
