Having served as pastor of a parish with a school, and now as bishop, I am committed to our mission of preaching the Gospel and assuring the formation in the faith of every Catholic.
As a Church, we react to human suffering and try to aid those in need. However, many in Wisconsin are not aware of a pervasive blight in our state that preys upon women, children, and men. It coerces and tricks individuals into performing uncompensated work often in degrading circumstances and with dangerous consequences. This scourge is human trafficking, and it is on the rise in Wisconsin and throughout our nation.
Bishop James Powers’ Christmas message for 2016
As I have been traveling throughout the Diocese and beyond, one of the requests I have been asked over and over is: “Bishop, TELL ME WHO TO VOTE FOR.”
