2018 BISHOP’S APPEAL WINDING DOWN

The 2019 Bishop’s Appeal that funds the ministries and services of the Green Bay Diocese will conclude at the end of June. At this point, only one of our Circle churches, Holy Trinity, has met their goal. When there is a deficit at the end of the campaign, parishes are billed for that amount - a situation we hope to avoid. All gifts are important, no matter the size. Here’s how you can donate today:

  • Make a check payable to The Catholic Foundation, and write Bishop’s Appeal in the memo line. Place it in the collection basket at Mass.
  • Mail your pledge or check to the Catholic Foundation at PO Box 22128, Green Bay, WI 54305.
  • For more info, or to give by credit card or electronic fund transfer go to www.catholicfoundationgb.org/give.

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
