Message from the Bishop

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,


Through the Bishop’s Appeal, we make a positive impact in our communities by providing programs and services that benefit thousands of people in our diocese.  Much of the work of inspiring disciples happens in our parishes through religious educators, Deacons, parish leaders, and care ministers.

Your gift provides educational opportunities and training to these modern-day disciples.  In turn they begin the important task of living a Christ-centered life and sharing it with people in their parishes.  Seeds of faith are planted, begin to grow and spread in the hearts of people throughout northeastern Wisconsin.

Please know 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 Embracing a Life of Discipleship in northeastern Wisconsin.  I am blessed to encounter people every day who benefit from your generosity.

Thank you for your support of the Church through the Bishop’s Appeal.  May God bless you and your family.

Bishop David L. Ricken

Most Reverend David L. Ricken, DD, JCL
