Help Support Our Seminarians and Priests
Bishop Walkowiak is looking for your feedback!
Over the last year, Bishop Walkowiak, in collaboration with diocesan leaders, has taken steps to evaluate the needs facing the Diocese of Grand Rapids. He is now asking for your input about a proposed diocesan-wide capital campaign to address a few of these needs which include support for seminarian education, specialized education for our priests, and the diocesan Priest Retirement Fund. Meeting these challenges will require an extraordinary level of financial support that is not possible through the annual Catholic Services Appeal (CSA).
The Diocese of Grand Rapids has retained the services of the Steier Group, a Catholic development and fundraising firm, to conduct the feasibility study. The study will enable the diocese to gather information which will help gauge the level of support for a potential capital campaign.
We believe this process is extremely important, and we encourage each of you to take part, as this will impact all of us. Your input is needed to help us plan for the future of the diocese and our parish. Visit the diocesan website, dioceseofgrandrapids.org, for more information. Thank you for your participation.
