BISHOP’S APPEAL 2017

Our Diocese is Inspiring Disciples by supporting those in need of Jesus’ love through the Bishop’s Appeal.
  • Through the Bishop’s Appeal people are trained as ministers. Men who discern a calling to the diaconate can receive education and formation.
  • Catholic Charities is able to reach out to those in need with individual and family counseling. They teach people financial responsibility and provide adoption and pregnancy counseling.
  • The Bishop’s Appeal helps prepare those who bring God’s love to the homebound, sick or hospitalized.
  • Children grow in their faith through Religious Education programs. Bishop’s Appeal funds guide Coordinators and catechists in curriculum decisions and teaching methods.
  • Bishop’s Appeal funding impacts college students and adults through evangelization efforts

All these people inspire disciples and all receive support through the Bishop’s Appeal. To learn more about the Appeal visit www.catholicfoundationgb.org/give. Please make your gift today to the Bishop’s Appeal. Help us to inspire disciples in our diocese.

SCHEDULING MASSES

Each parish in our Circles of Faith accepts Mass requests for your intentions. The stipend/offering is $10 whether on a weekend or weekday. To schedule, please call the church office where you would like the Mass said. As an alternative, and especially if you want to have many Masses said, the retired priests of our diocese appreciate having an intention for the Masses they celebrate daily. The stipends are also a source of help for them in their retirement. Mass intentions for retired priests may be arranged by calling your parish office.

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 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
