Bishop’s Appeal

The Bishop’s Appeal is the annual fundraising campaign conducted by the Catholic Foundation to support the ministries and services of the Catholic Diocese of Green Bay to our parishes, schools, families and individuals.

Each family is asked to prayerfully consider how much they will pledge as our partners as the heart and hands of Jesus in service to others.
