2023 Bishops Appeal

What is the Bishop’s Appeal?

The Bishop’s Appeal is a stewardship opportunity for each of us to reach out to thousands of people in search of Jesus’ love. Each gift given supports the ministries of the Diocese of Green Bay which serve our parishes, Catholic schools, and communities. Your gift truly helps bring the heart and hands of Christ to our children, young adults, families and neighbors here in northeastern Wisconsin. Each family is asked to prayerfully consider how much they will pledge as our partners as the heart and hands of Jesus in service to others.

Why Give to the Bishop’s Appeal?

And the king will say to them in reply, “Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.” -Matthew 25:40

Your gift to the Bishop’s Appeal will help in countless ways. Care ministers are trained to go out and share the Gospel with the homebound and sick. Children and families are able to attend lively, interactive education programs learning the Word of God. A young woman in an abusive relationship is able, through counseling with Catholic Charities, to stand on her own feet. Married couples struggling with infertility are able to become parents through Adoption Services. Your gift to the Bishop’s Appeal makes happy endings possible.

91-93% of every dollar raised goes to Diocesan ministries and services right here in northeast Wisconsin.

Members receive additional spiritual guidance through: (1) the annual Bishop’s Appreciation Mass and Luncheon, (2) The Compass diocesan newspaper and (3) Invitations to special diocesan events. To learn more on the various giving levels and other information, please click here!
