The Catholic Stewardship Appeal enables the Archdiocese of Milwaukee to advance the work and mission of the Church throughout southeastern Wisconsin. 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.
Truly, We Are One in Christ. Though we are a people of varying backgrounds, nationalities and ethnicities, we are drawn together by and through a common faith, common values, and a deep and abiding love for the Catholic Church.
We need to support that Church to the best of our ability. Luke’s gospel tells us that if we only do what we are obliged to do, we have not lived our faith. We must go above and beyond what is merely being asked of us to truly be alive in it.
It’s up to each of us to seize this moment 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 this year and in the years to come.
Won’t you please join me in helping to fulfill this vision and mission by supporting the Appeal? I’d be grateful for your support. My prayers are with you. God’s blessings!
Sincerely yours in Christ,
The Most Reverend Jerome E. Listecki
