CATHOLIC The 2017-18 Upper Peninsula Catholic Services Appeal marks the 50th year of the initiative more commonly known as UPCSA. The diocesan annual appeal funds works across four broad areas: Evangelization (21 per- cent), Faith Formation and Education (33 percent) Vo- cations and Pastoral Outreach (30 percent) and Catholic Social Services (16 percent). Go into My Vineyard is this years theme, inspired by the Sunday Mass readings for Sept. 23 and 24, when the appeal begins. Bishop John Doerfler wrote to parishioners that the theme reminds us that God is always inviting us to labor in his vineyard, to cooperate with the Lord in reaping the harvest, that is, bringing others to Christ. The Church thrives when we unite in faith and stewardship of the Church. When he announced the founding of UPCSA, Bishop Charles A. Salatka noted, Today as Catholics, we must concern ourselves with many spiritual needs and human services that were unknown years ago. Today our con- cerns extend well beyond the boundaries of the individual parishes to spiritual services that are the concern of all Catholics in the Upper Peninsula. Evangelization has been a focus of Bishop Doerfler since his episcopal ordination and installation Mass when he made his three-fold challenge to the diocese: Be a friend of Jesus. Make a friend. Introduce your friend to Jesus. His pastoral letter on evangelization was released this summer with a blueprint for parishes, missions, schools and all the faithful of the diocese to begin sharing the faith as Spir- it-filled evangelizers. The diocesan department of evangelization and edu- cation, partly funded by UPCSA, is working to promote evangelization across the Upper Peninsula. Mark Salis- bury, director of the department, said, We will be work- ing first with pastors, and then collaborating with parish leadership teams to create parish evangelization plans to assist in the formation of Spirit-filled evangelizers in all parishes. Among the priorities of faith formation and education is strengthening marriage. Already more than 30 couples have been trained to become mentors for those seeking marriage, with outreach continuing beyond their I dos. The diocese has been blessed every year with men be- ginning studies for the priesthood. Efforts to help young men discern a vocation include an annual Gods Call in the Wilderness three-day hiking and camping event with Bishop Doerfler. The young men also spend time with a priest who is the diocesan director of vocations, Father Ben Hasse as well as a deacon, Deacon Tom Foye. This past spring young women had the opportunity to take part in a discernment weekend at the Carmelite Monastery in Iron Mountain. Led by Sister Jaqueline Spaniola, OSF, the women focused on Ignatian spirituality. Another ministry under the Vocations and Pastoral 50th annual appeal continues serving spiritual, human needs across U.P. SEE UPCSA, PAGE 7
