J.O.S.H.U.A.

Resurrection partners with the Living Justice Office of the Diocese of Green Bay and with J.O.S.H.U.A. on charity and justice projects, participating with the Holy Spirit to further the reign of God in our world. Bishop David L. Ricken has established a Diocesan Living Justice Department to oversee Catholic social justice work, and has given approval for parishes to partner with J.O.S.H.U.A. on various projects, as well as for parishioners to be individual members of J.O.S.H.U.A. Parishes as a whole may not be full contributing members of J.O.S.H.U.A. Bishop Ricken encourages Catholic and ecumenical work on social justice projects.

Twinning Project with Excel Center in Okolona, MS

Twinning with St .Theresa’s Parish-Okolona, Mississippi and Resurrection Parish -Green Bay, Wisconsin. Teaming up to share time, talent, and treasure!

The Twinning Committee is a sub-committee of the Human Concerns Committee. They are very involved with our twinning parish in Okolona. A few times a year parishioners volunteer to go to Okolona for work details that do general cleaning, light remodeling etc. Parishioners with teaching or unusual talents have gone to Okolona for one week during the summer to share their talents with young people. Resurrection Parishioners have helped by:

  • Sharing in Prayer and Liturgy
  • Clothing and Household Drive for the Thrift store/Office and School Supplies
  • Cash Donations
  • Personal Visits
  • Tutoring
  • Supplied books and text books
  • Pen Pals

We are always recruiting new parishioners to share their talents in Okolona. If you would like more information about the Twinning Committee or how you can volunteer for a work trip or the summer programs in Okolona, please contact Sheila De Luca or call the Parish Office at 336-7768.
