2019 BISHOP’S APPEAL GETS UNDERWAY

BA 2019 1

In this week’s Gospel, Luke addresses the financial and social conditions of the human race; the rich -- the poor; the hungry – the satisfied; those grieving – those laughing; the outcast .Some people become so consumed by their troubles that they are unable to recognize God’s tremendous love for them. As Missionaries of Hope, we are called to help those struggling most in life.

The diocesan office of Catholic Charities has five outreach centers that provide social service needs to those in northeastern Wisconsin who have lost hope--those who need guidance navigating life’s most difficult challenges. When you contribute to the Bishop’s Appeal you are a Missionary of Hope!

Please prayerfully consider making a gift to the Bishop’s Appeal. Pledge cards and envelopes have been sent to all households to facilitate a donation. Or, visit the Bishop’s Appeal website at www.catholicfoundationgb.org/give to learn more about the ways your contribution supports the ministries and services of the diocese. Thank you for your support of the Bishop’s Appeal.

WHY GIVE TO THE BISHOP’S APPEAL?

BA 2019 Logo

Just as financial support of your parish is critical to its vitality, the annual drive called the Bishop’s Appeal is fundamental to the operation of the diocese. Parishes alone cannot provide for the spiritual needs and the services offered through the diocese. Collectively, all Catholics in northeastern Wisconsin can make a difference in the lives of our children, youth, young adults, families, and senior population. We challenge you to share in this effort by making a contribution in the next few weeks.

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
