Message from the Bishop

Dear Brothers and Sisters,


As Christians, we are called to be people of hope helping one another grow in our relationship with Jesus.  Much of this work happens in our parishes, Catholic schools and through the ministries of the Diocese.

Today, there are many Missionaries of Hope who share the love of Jesus with young people eager to learn about the Catholic faith.  One easy way you can help them is by supporting the Bishop’s Appeal.

In our Diocese, I see many beautiful examples of people serving as Missionaries of Hope.  Your support is also instrumental in providing help and hope through Catholic Charities to individuals with gambling problems or addictions.  People desperate to find answers reach out to Catholic Charities for debt management services, counseling, parenting support and adoption.

Your gift to the Bishop’s Appeal makes a tremendous difference!  Through support of the Appeal, together we are Missionaries of Hope.  Please prayerfully consider making your gift today.

Thank you for your support of the Church through the Bishop’s Appeal.  Please know your gift will only be used to support the ministries of the Catholic Diocese of Green Bay.  May God bless you and your family.

Bishop David L. Ricken
