The Message Ministry Supplement - No. 3 - September 2023

This supplement to the digital edition of The Message appears monthly and features news and information about ministries across the Diocese of Evansville, and the events they are sponsoring.

Catholic Ministries Appeal

As Bishop Joseph M. Siegel notes in his “Bishop’s Corner” column this week, what was formerly known as the Catholic Parishes Campaign — or CPC — is now called the Catholic Ministries Appeal. This renaming is more than just a cosmetic change; it represents a refocusing on the purpose of the appeal and on how the funds collected are used.

Marriage Preparation in the Diocese of Evansville

The Diocese of Evansville, through the Office of Family & Life, provides marriage preparation for couples wanting to get married in the Catholic Church. Marriage preparation is quite different than wedding preparation; but for both to occur, the couple’s first step is to contact their parish.

New book inspired by missionary priest who is a son of the Diocese

Every second-grade classroom and elementary school library in Diocese of Evansville Catholic schools recently received a copy of a newly published book based on the life of a missionary priest who is a son of the Diocese of Evansville. Administrators received the books in late August.

“Tiny Teak,” co-authored by Mary Ellen Ziliak and Lucy Ziliak Will and illustrated by Joan Dewig deJong, is based on the life of Divine Word Missionary Father Jerome “Jerry” Ziliak.
