CATHOLIC SERVICES APPEAL As the 2023/24 Catholic Services Appeal continues, we are grateful to the parish families that have already made their gift or pledge. For us to achieve our overall goal of $63,338, it will require the active involvement and personal sacrifice of all members of our faith community. Thus far, 123 families have responded. We have reached a total of $36,228 in pledges. If you have not yet responded to the CSA, please set aside a moment to prayerfully consider a gift amount that reflects your blessings. Your gift will help tremendously and, together with your fellow parishioners, will enable the diocese to provide essential pastoral, educational, and human needs throughout northern Wisconsin. There are envelopes for your donation located in the blue basket near the ramp entrance. Thank you!!
