STEWARDSHIP MESSAGE

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”


DID YOU KNOW?

The Green Bay Diocese through its Catholic Charities Office offers teen parent services when a pregnancy occurs. They provide help to frightened and confused, sometimes angry young adults in making decisions about their situation and the choice to be parents. It’s just one of the ways that your gifts to the Bishop’s Appeal help people in northeastern Wisconsin. Thank you for your support.


REPORTING SEXUAL ABUSE

If you know of an incident of sexual abuse of a person who is now under the age of 18 by a priest, deacon, employee or volunteer, please immediately call the civil authorities and then the diocese. If the person was abused as a minor but is now an adult, please call Jayne Stefanic, Diocesan Assistance Coordinator, at 920-272-8174, or toll free at 1-877-270-8184.

We always encourage you to report the incident to civil authorities.

The Our Father

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen

Hail Mary

Hail, Mary! Full of grace, The Lord is with thee, Blessed are thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death. Amen

Glory Be

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen
