First in a series on the Bishop's Appeal

Compass Assistant Editor
Those who viewed the 2005 Bishop's Appeal video last weekend saw the impact of Sr. Pat Flanigan's ministry on migrant workers and their families in Wautoma.
They also witnessed faith sharing with college students by Laurie Svatek at the UW-Green Bay Ecumenical Center, and by Fr. Bob Kollath at the Newman Center at UW-Oshkosh.
