Since the establishment of the Diocese of Superior over 100 years ago, the mission of the Church has remained constant…to proclaim God’s Word, to celebrate the Eucharist and the sacraments, to build up Christian communities and to leave the impression of Christ on each generation.
Each generation of Catholics has faced its own unique challenges and opportunities, but our primary task and responsibility is to preserve and enhance the mission of Jesus for ourselves and for the next generations. Of particular importance is the strengthening of the family and the parish…the heart and soul of our diocese.
Although much of the work of our parishes, schools, and diocesan programs and ministries are presently made possible through weekly giving, it is likewise recognized that the future of the Church will be built, sustained and enhanced primarily on a foundation of endowment gifts. The building of the Catholic Endowment Fund is perpetual in duration and vital to the future of our diocese and the viability of over 100 parishes.
The Catholic Endowment must become our legacy to the future, so that by the end of the next century the future Bishop of Superior and the people of northern Wisconsin will rejoice and proclaim that we too had a vision, and courage to do “our share” as stewards of God’s gifts.
Our Catholic ministries can continue to be supported during you lifetime and in perpetuity through the establishment of a special fund in your name through the Catholic Endowment Fund. Gifts can be designated to the general fund or to one or more specific funds.
