Bishop’s Appeal Stories

Forming Families in Faith

Faith formation programs in our parishes help people to discover Jesus and share His love with others.

At St. Thomas More Parish in Appleton, a dedicated team is helping people discover Jesus and share Him with people of all ages.  This begins with families.

“We are taking that team approach because we know that we need to catechize the family as a whole…everybody needs to have that encounter with Christ,” says Andy Chmura, Missionary Discipleship Coordinator of Families and Youth at St. Thomas More.

Faith formation is a true foundation for us as Catholics.  Forming families in the Catholic faith makes our Church and its people stronger.

Your gift to the Bishop’s Appeal helps provide parishes with the resources they need to lead people to Jesus.

“When you’re investing in the Bishop’s Appeal, you’re investing in every single parish in the Diocese, not just the one that you go to, but the Diocese as a whole, to make everybody stronger,” says Chmura.

Growing Hispanic Ministry

Fr. José López & Sr. Martha Escobar

Right now, the Hispanic community is growing in the Diocese of Green Bay.

At Ss. Peter and Paul Parish in Green Bay, Fr. José López works with Sr. Martha Escobar to minister to our growing Hispanic community.  Sr. Martha serves as Hispanic Ministry Director for the Diocese.

“We’re part of the same team,” says Fr. José.  The Bishop’s Appeal, their support, the Diocese, our parish, we’re part of the same family.  Our only hope and desire is to lead souls to Christ.”

There is a need to support services to the Hispanic community in our Diocese.  Your gift to the Bishop’s Appeal helps people like Sr. Martha and Fr. José continue their work to share Christ’s love with people in our communities.

Because of your generosity to the Bishop’s Appeal, our parishes are able to help others grow in faith and love for our Lord.  Thank you.
