MADISON -- “In daring to hope, we express our faith and love in the Lord, and in daring to hope, we will find ourselves loving and caring for the spiritual needs of those in our diocese and elsewhere.”

Bishop Robert C. Morlino has chosen “We Dare to Hope” as the theme of the 2018 Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA). In a world where there is so much despair, hate, and sadness, we as Catholics can take this opportunity to hold on to, and share with everyone we can, our only true source of hope: Jesus Christ, the Risen Lord, who will never disappoint.

As we take time to reflect further upon this year’s ACA theme, it gives us the opportunity to look at all of the hope that a donation to the ACA can provide.

From supporting one of the 30-plus programs offered through Catholic Charities, to empowering Catholic education through support for teachers and schools, to providing mentorship and resources for family, college, and youth ministries, a donation to the ACA allows you to truly know, love, and serve the Lord.

This year’s ACA is, once again, seeking your help and asking for you to prayerfully consider what you are able to do, to support so many important ministries that are impacted throughout our diocese, through your donation.

Next weekend, parishes across the diocese will participate in commitment weekend.
