“It is sacred furniture that is set apart for holy things, to be the table of the Lord himself, where His Body and Blood are offered every time we have Mass,” said Bishop David Ricken. Bishop Ricken was speaking about the consecration of a new altar at Nativity of Our Lord Parish in Green Bay. The parish was able to make the renewal of their sanctuary a priority through the one by One capital campaign.
Managed by the Catholic Foundation, the one by One campaign works to transform and enhance Catholic parishes in the Diocese of Green Bay. Each parish in the Diocese will participate in its own campaign. Through their campaign, Nativity Parish wanted to plan for and realize the restoration of their parish sanctuary.
“For decades to come, parishioners and visitors to Nativity Parish will be nourished at the new altar,” said Josh Diedrich, Executive Director for the Catholic Foundation. “The renovations of the sacred space at the parish were made possible through the commitment of many families who have given so generously to this project as part of the one by One campaign.”
