Appleton couple sharing
what they learned
They're teaching stewardship taught by parents to children
|A WAY OF LIFE: Brian and Catherine Wallace of St. Mary Parish, Appleton, discuss the importance of stewardship in their lives. (Dick Meyer photo)
Second in a three-part series on the Stewardship of Sharing
By Joanne Flemming
For Brian and Catherine Wallace of Appleton, good stewardship was a lesson learned from their parents and one they are passing on to their five children.
"It was a lesson I learned early in my family," said Brian. "If you were blessed, you gave back."
His parents, Clarence and Dolores Wallace, have supported the ACES/Xavier system for many years, he said. Their most notable gift was the money for the construction of Xavier High School's fine arts theater.
As for Catherine, she said her parents were active volunteers at church and the schools and taught her "to share what you have."
The Wallaces said they have chosen to "dedicate" both their time and treasure to what they are "passionate" about - education and the church.
Brian, a banker, volunteers his time for what Catherine describes as the "broader things." He serves on the ACES/Xavier system board and the capital campaign committee for facility expansion at St. Mary Parish, their parish, in Appleton. He has also coached grade school athletics.
Catherine said she prefers "more local things" like volunteering at Catholic Central, the school where four of their five children attend. She serves as Market Day chairperson and helps teachers in their classrooms. Full story ...
