"Bishop's Appeal 2016"
"Mercy is the bridge that connects God and man, opening our hearts to the hope of being loved forever despite our sinfulness."
                              - Pope Francis
 
Our Diocese is a place of mercy and hope bringing compassion and the love of Jesus to thousands of people. Here in our parish, we have wonderful faces of mercy...care ministers, religious catechists/educators, and deacons. These are the people who help us bring the Faces of God's Mercy to others.

One way we can all become Faces of God's Mercy is through the Bishop's Appeal. It is through the appeal that so many beautiful ministries are made possible, including those I just mentioned, and many more. Please join me in supporting the Bishop's Appeal with a gift today! Thank you!

Yours in Christ,
Fr. Don Zuleger

To make a gift today contact our parish at 920-739-4157, visit the Bishop's Appeal website at www.catholicfoundationgb.org/give  or call Debbie toll-free at 877-500-3580, ext. 8184.
