DIOCESE OF BISMARCK STARTS CATHOLIC FOUNDATION ?The Most Rev. David D. Kagan, bishop of the Diocese of Bismarck, has announced the implementation of the Catholic Foundation for the People of the Diocese of Bismarck, effective July 1.
Mike Kiedrowski, director of planned giving for the Diocese of Bismarck, will be the first executive director of the Catholic Foundation.
The new foundation, which is the first of its kind in western North Dakota, will give parishioners, parishes, Catholic school systems and other Catholic agencies in western North Dakota an opportunity to grow in the practice of being good stewards. Participation with the Catholic foundation is voluntary.
Kagan said the opportunity for parishes, schools and other Catholic diocesan-related entities to deposit funds into the investment pool will produce a greater return. He added that parishioners may establish individual endowment funds and/or donor advised funds to support their favorite ministries, which would be an advantage for each of the entities within the foundation.
PRESENTATION TO ADDRESS CREATION VS. EVOLUTION Brian Young, from Creation Instruction Association, will give a presentation July 7 at 10:35 a.m. in St. Mark's Lutheran Church, 2209-4th Ave. NW, Minot.
