In one of his many visits to parishes and Catholic schools around the Diocese of Madison, Bishop Donald J. Hying came to St. Joseph School in Baraboo recently. He visited students in all the grade levels, talking with them and answering questions. “We loved having Bishop Hying visit with our students and faculty,” said Cheryl Filipiak, administrative assistant at the school.

MADISON -- As we approach Thanksgiving and the Advent season, it is a perfect time to give thanks to all of those who supported the 2019 Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA).

Whether your gift was monetary support or prayers for the success of the appeal, your participation was critical in bringing the Light of Faith to so many throughout the Diocese of Madison.

This year, the goal for the ACA was set at $3.5 million — we have almost met this goal, but are not quite there yet. To help us reach $3.5 million, please prayerfully consider making a year-end donation to the ACA by giving at madison diocese.org/acagive

So many people throughout our diocese benefit from the important ministries funded through your generosity. Below are just a few examples of who your gift impacts:

• Support services and teacher training in Catholic schools — Do you know any children that attend a Catholic school in the diocese? The ACA funds trainings for principals to assure schools are compliant with state and federal laws, accreditations, and best practices. It also supports mentorship training, renewing of teachers licenses, as well as trainings for diocesan teachers in our schools.

MADISON -- It’s simple: seven women each pray a Eucharistic Holy Hour one day a week for one priest.

I became the “anchoress” of a Seven Sisters Apostolate group last September.

This year, I’ve witnessed a surge in other groups being founded in our diocese. I’m told that now there are 14 — and more are forming.

The first Madison group started in 2015.
