GRACE 2010 Annual Appeal

GRACE (Green Bay Area Catholic Education) System thanks you for your support in the First Annual Appeal a year ago and comes to you in this second appeal with news of progress in establishing a GRACE Endowment at the Catholic Foundation and achieving ongoing improvements in our Catholic faith integration, professional development and school programs.

The beauty of a Catholic school education is recognized by many as the way to have children experience fully integrated Catholic faith throughout the entire school experience, including curriculum, playground, athletics, service and all extra curricular activities.

Children experience Catholic school education from PreK-3 to grade 8 in the GRACE System. We encourage all of you to go to the GRACE website (www.gracesystem.org) to learn more about the steps GRACE is taking to become a collaborative ministry of 23 parishes on behalf of children.

A parish or school representative will speak with you at all of the Masses this weekend to share their love of the Catholic school. In addition, Bishop Ricken has prepared an audio tape encouraging everyone to participate in the GRACE 2010 Appeal. Brochures explaining more about GRACE will arrive at your homes by regular mail within the next week or two.

Please prayerfully consider what you can give to advance the cause of GRACE in our Green Bay area. You may contact President Carol Conway-Gerhardt with any of your questions or suggestions by email (cconwaygerhardt@gbdioc.org) or by phone (920-499-7330).

May God bless you in your generosity!
