Catholic Stewardship Appeal

Catholic Stewardship Appeal

Each year the Catholic Stewardship Appeal funds ministries that benefit more than 500,000 Catholics and countless others in 195 parish communities across the ten-county Archdiocese of Milwaukee.

Contributions are restricted to the annual Catholic Stewardship Appeal for use in four key areas of ministry: serving families, strengthening parishes, supporting schools, and 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. Gifts to the 2018 Appeal are used solely to support these ministries and shall be kept separate from other assets of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.


From Archbishop Listecki

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

Together we make such a huge difference. We proved that last year when we exceeded our $7.7 million goal by raising
a record $8 million through the Appeal for archdiocesan ministries and programs. My confidence is high that we will
repeat that success in 2018.
This year’s theme, DECIDE TO LEAD, is a bold, direct statement; a clear, unequivocal declaration of what we need to do.
It is a challenge of sorts to all of us as servant disciples of Jesus Christ. By the grace of God, each of us possesses
special gifts meant to glorify Him and his kingdom on Earth meaning that we must be active in our faith,
not merely watching from the sidelines or being satisfied sitting on the bench.


We must be advocates. We must be doers. We must be leaders!
