The Missionary Leadership Institute! Diocese of Green Bay

The Missionary Leadership Institute! Diocese of Green Bay

Imagine what parishes in the Diocese of Green Bay would look like if each parish had a group of staff and parishioners, formed as missionary disciples, equipped to accompany other individuals and to serve as leaders in any apostolate to which they are called!

Introducing the Missionary Leadership Institute / Instituto de Liderazgo Misionero, a three-year process designed to serve the needs of a wide variety of parish leaders who seek to:

  • Discern their vocation: their particular call to holiness
  • Be formed as leaders to evangelize and disciple others
  • Receive the tools to foster a culture of missionary disciple
  • Serve more effectively as lay ecclesial ministers (parish staff)

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.  Families seeking to adopt are connected with newborn babies.  Your gift to the Bishop’s Appeal makes happy endings possible.

Josie Vosters: Spirit of Kateri Award Recipient at Camp Tekakwitha

Josie Vosters: Spirit of Kateri Award Recipient at Camp Tekakwitha

We’re proud to announce that Josie Vosters was recently a camper at Camp Tekakwitha, and at the end of their session, she was a recipient of the Spirit of Kateri Award!
 

Each week, Camp Tekakwitha staff awards the Spirit of Kateri Award to two exceptional campers in recognition of their leadership, love of Christ, and dedication to serving their cabinmates and friends at Camp Tekakwitha. Josie was one of the two campers awarded in her session, nominated by her counselors and selected by the staff!

As a young person, Saint Kateri Tekakwitha displayed a deep love for Jesus amidst numerous obstacles, and was a witness to Christ and a friend to many. St. Kateri Tekakwitha’s intercession guides the staff and campers of Camp Tekakwitha as they strive to imitate her witness of love, selflessness, and friendship. Josie was a definite leader in her cabin, and certainly emulated the “spirit” of our great patroness St. Kateri in acts of kindness and love.

Winners of the Spirit of Kateri Award are honored among the campers and parents, and receive a shirt with St. Kateri’s famous words, “I am not my own, I have given myself entirely to Jesus.” We’re so proud of Josie!

Josie graduated from  St. John Nepomucene Catholic School and will be a sophomore at Career Pathways at Little Chute High School.
