This weekend, parishes throughout our Diocese promoted the annual Bishop's Appeal. The audio above is our Bishop's message. You can find the video at the end of this post. Here is the appeal text from the website:

Ordinary Time, 5th Sunday. “You are the light of the world.” — Matthew 5:14

We are the light of the world, and God calls us to share the light of Christ. Funds raised through the Bishop’s Appeal support the mission and ministries of the Diocese of Green Bay. These ministries help young people learn about Jesus in our parishes and Catholic schools. Those in need of counseling are helped at Catholic Charities. Men receive training and formation to become deacons. Pastoral care is provided to church members.

Please prayerfully consider a gift to the Bishop’s Appeal. Your gift today, helps us build vibrant parishes and share the Gospel throughout northeastern Wisconsin. Thank you for your support of the Bishop’s Appeal. For more information visit
