THE 2018-19 CATHOLIC SERVICES APPEAL will be conducted in all parishes throughout the Superior Diocese on September 15/16. We must remember that we are one with the other churches in northern Wisconsin and with our Diocese itself. The appeal is a means by which we can all work together to love and care for the Church by sharing the gifts God has granted to us. Your participation is essential, not only to the success of the CSA, but also to the parish. Please join other Catholics from throughout the 16 counties of the Diocese in supporting this very important appeal. No Catholic parish in the Diocese can exist on its own without the CSA.
