Appeal-Funded Ministries

Four key areas of ministry: serving families, strengthening parishes, supporting schools, and forming priests and parish leaders.

Ministry levelsContributions to the annual $7.7 million Catholic Stewardship Appeal are restricted for use in four key areas of ministry:

  • Serving families
  • Strengthening parishes
  • Supporting schools
  • Forming priests and parish leaders

Each area includes distinct and essential services that form an important part of what the Church in southeastern Wisconsin does to serve God.

Many of these ministries have no other means of financial support and their reach extends well beyond what any parish or school could provide on its own.

The descriptions below detail all ministries funded in the 2017 Catholic Stewardship Appeal and, as such, serve as documentation of the 2017 Appeal's case for support.

The stated amount of $7.7 million for the 2017 Catholic Stewardship Appeal is the amount needed to conduct the Appeal and fund the various ministries described below. If more than that amount is raised, the excess will be used for one or more of the ministries described to provide expanded services. If less than the stated amount is raised, some ministries described below will be funded at lower levels or may have to be suspended.

Supporting Schools

Catholic schools transform our local and global communities into centers of faith, hope and charity by providing quality Catholic education to all people.

Strengthening Parishes

Your gift to the Appeal helps provide formation as well as resources for the hundreds of parishioners involved in liturgical ministries.

Forming Priests and Parish Leaders

The future of the Catholic Church lies in sound faith formation and leadership training for its clergy and parish leaders.
