We are honored to have the privilege of leading this year’s fundraising efforts for the Catholic Stewardship Appeal. Because we have so much to be thankful for, we want to share our blessings and good fortune to help those who are in need, by helping to move the faithful of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee to even greater heights of generosity and stewardship.
We look forward to working with Archbishop Listecki, who serves as our inspirational leader. His pastoral presence, spiritual guidance, and infectious enthusiasm are hard to deny. With him and hundreds of parish volunteers working on behalf of the Appeal, we are confident that together, we will reach the $7.7 million goal to support Catholic life throughout southeastern Wisconsin.
The foundational ministries of our Catholic Church all benefit from the success of the Appeal, including: priestly formation, Catholic schools, parish religious education programs, marriage preparation, Catholic Charities, and the work of 195 parishes.
As we move forward this year, engaged in this important task before us, we call upon God’s grace and the power and presence of the Holy Spirit to guide our collective efforts to transform the Church, its ministries, and the lives of over 500,000 Catholics through the Catholic Stewardship Appeal.
On behalf of the many people who will benefit from your generosity, we hope that you will prayerfully consider making a gift to this year’s campaign. We hope to hear from you! We also humbly ask for your personal prayers of support for the annual appeal.
Thank you and God bless you!
In Christ's Name,
