Video Message from Bishop Walkowiak on Abuse Scandal

From Feb. 21 – 24, presidents of bishops’ conferences from around the world will meet at the Vatican to discuss the clergy sexual abuse scandal and our global response as a Catholic Church. In a continuing effort to be as transparent as possible, Bishop Walkowiak would like to share an update on this topic and answer some of the questions he has received from parishioners.

CSA 2018 Information

 
The annual Catholic Services Appeal (CSA) draws together all Catholics in the Diocese of Grand Rapids in a unique way in the service of the Lord. Every financial gift to the CSA helps sustain programs that would not otherwise be possible through one individual or parish “So Faith May Flourish.” In a time when our world is becoming increasingly secularized, these works of evangelization, charity and education carry a renewed importance, both in our 11-county diocese and throughout the world.
Please prayerfully consider your gift to this year’s appeal. Thank you for your generosity!  Online giving information is HERE.
