Diocese Reviews Grant Details

Initial check shows awards support Church teachings

On Nov. 12, 2009, the Diocese of Green Bay became aware of concerns involving the Gamaliel Foundation and its state umbrella group called WISDOM. It appears that the groups had been associated with Health Care for American Now (HCAN), which on Nov. 7, 2009, began to advocate for the inclusion of abortion coverage. It is our understanding that, earlier this week, both groups notified HCAN to withdraw their membership. This is of interest to the Diocese of Green Bay because two local groups, JOSHUA and ESTHER, have associations with Gamaliel and WISDOM.

Titled "A New Moment for Catechesis in the Diocese of Green Bay," the 3,500-word pastoral letter discusses the adult catechism's use in faith formation and religious instruction in the diocese.

Bishop asks parishes to respond to those in need

bishopBishop David L. Ricken is asking Catholics to help families and individuals who are feeling fearful, uncertain, and anxious because of the economic downturn.

To help make this possible, the Diocese of Green Bay has put together a packet of helpful ideas, programs, and resource materials.
