Your Annual Appeal donations are needed to help the missions both in our parish in Bolivia and the orphanage in Peru. Many of the 65,000+ people who live in these parish boundaries do so in extreme poverty. Your help is your commitment to serve through Christ’s love and often leads to significant change in the lives of others. Additionally, your gift supports the 11 special collections that benefit needs around the world, but are no longer held in our parishes.

These are just a few of the ministries that benefit from your donations. Your gifts make sure the students in our Diocese receive a quality education. It helps the ministry with Persons with Special Needs to make sure everyone feels welcome in every parish and school. It helps our retired Priests, our seminarians, our televised masses – the list goes on and on. For more information on where your gift goes, why it matters and how it is God’s work, please visit our website at www.dioceseoflacrosse.com.
