World Mission Appeal

In October of 2022, Bishop Albeiro Maldonado from the diocese of Mocoa-Sibundoy in Colombia was invited to Old St. Mary Parish as a missionary guest speaker. Thanks to the generosity of many parishioners, Bishop Albeiro was able to pay the mortgage of the only diocese-run Catholic school in his territory, I.E. Placido Camilo Crous. Bishop Albeiro was also able to cover the social security expenses for some of the priests in his diocese. He remains deeply grateful for the great things the generosity of many here made possible in his missionary diocese.

This year, we look forward to welcoming Bishop Albeiro once again at Old St. Mary for the Mission Appeal weekend. Bishop Albeiro’s appeal this time will be directed towards the same diocese-run school in his diocese to help with the construction of a covered field for children to play sports and gather for school assemblies. The appeal will also help fund scholarships for children to study at this same school, approximately $500 per year per child.

Your generous support allows us to connect the faithful of Southeastern Wisconsin to missionaries and mission projects around the world. We could not do it without you!
