Archbishop Listecki's Message

Through the Appeal, thousands are empowered to form, educate, inspire and serve more than 500,000 Catholics.

Archbishop Jerome Listecki The Archdiocese of Milwaukee relies on the Catholic Stewardship Appeal’s success each year to provide critical funding to enable it to advance the work and mission of the Church throughout southeastern Wisconsin.  This is no small task, but united in spirit and faith we extend our blessings to help care for our brothers and sisters in need.  With your help, we can accomplish so much.  

This year’s theme, DECIDE TO LEAD, is a bold, clear, unequivocal declaration of how, as Catholics, we must follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.  Through God’s infinite grace, each of us possesses special gifts meant to glorify Him and his kingdom here on Earth.  We cannot merely be content watching from the sidelines.  We must be active in our faith!  We must be advocates.  We must be doers.  We must be leaders!

It’s up to each of us to seize the opportunities before us by committing our hearts, our minds, and our souls to meet, know and live Christ as we work together to fully realize the vision, mission and sacramental life of the Church now and in the years to come.

DECIDE TO LEAD!  Join me by making the most generous gift possible to this year’s Catholic Stewardship Appeal.  Thank you so much.  Please pray for me, as I will for you.  God’s blessings!

Sincerely yours in Christ,

The Most Reverend Jerome E. Listecki
