From Bishop Hying

Special Letter from Bishop Donald Hying-Please Read.  

On Pentecost Sunday,  a bold new Evangelization Initiative called “Go Make Disciples” in the Diocese of Madison was launched.  Bishop Donald Hying has sent a letter to all our pastors and parishes with an introduction to this initiative.  Our Diocesan Herald Citizen is an important tool for us to learn about the Evangelization Intiative:  "Go Make Disciples".
