This form is for gathering information for the diocesan Directory of Parish Social Ministry Initiatives. In order to address most fruitfully the social concerns within our diocese, our nation and the world, we have begun an exciting new collaboration between Catholic Charities, the Diocesan Office for Ministries and Social Concerns, the Diocesan Mission Office, and a Social Ministry Advisory Committee of representatives of each of the 13 deaneries of our diocese. We are asking the parishes of the diocese to review their current social ministry initiatives (any outreach of charity or social advocacy). If these are not already listed in the Directory of Parish Social Ministry Initiatives, the pastor or someone authorized by him is asked to take a moment to complete and submit this form for each organization/resource. If you have questions, please contact Jen Mickschl of the Office for Ministries and Social Concerns at 608-791-0161Once completed, the updated directory will be made available to all parishes.
