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]

Please prayerfully consider making your gift today.  Thank you!



Impacting Lives for 20 Years

Since its founding in 1997, the Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Green Bay has distributed more than $35,000,000 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.
