Bishop’s Circle

What is Bishop’s Circle?

Bishop’s Circle is a group of leaders from throughout the diocese who are committed to advancing the mission of the Church in our Sioux City Diocese through prayer, active involvement, and financial support that help sustain and enhance current ministries and programs. 


What are the benefits of joining Bishop’s Circle?

Members enjoy the knowledge that their participation directly and positively impacts the diocese’s ability to carry out the work of the Church across our 24 counties and beyond. Your dollars help fund special projects and events throughout the year, such as the Men’s and Women’s Conferences, activities for the Seminarians, supporting our parishes and schools in various ways. Every dollar in Bishop’s Circle is used to enhance our existing activities, as well as create new ones throughout the year. Bishop’s Circle members receive communication with the Bishop throughout the year, recognition at the diocesan offices on a special donor wall, as well as an invitation to an annual mass and reception with the bishop in August of each year.


How do I become a member of Bishop’s Circle?

Members are asked to complete the registration card and commit to an annual contribution of $1000.00 or more.
