Contributions to the annual $7.8 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 2019 Catholic Stewardship Appeal and, as such, serve as documentation of the 2018 Appeal's case for support.
For your convenience, download a PDF version of Appeal-funded Ministries.
The stated amount of $7.8 million for the 2018 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.
Please wait while we gather your results.
Ministries supporting family life encompass spiritual formation, social and human needs common to all families and age ranges including those who come from other nations and cultures.
Catholic schools transform our local and global communities into centers of faith, hope and charity by providing quality Catholic education to all people.
Your gift to the Appeal helps provide formation as well as resources for the hundreds of parishioners involved in liturgical ministries.
The future of the Catholic Church lies in sound faith formation and leadership training for its clergy and parish leaders.
