Multicultural center in Madison to reopen

 |  NCR Today

Donations have steadily been coming in allowing the Catholic Multicultural Center in Madison to reopen. It was closed last month, the victime of diocesan belt tightening.

Now Msgr. Ken Fiedler, pastor of Our Lady Queen of Peace, which has been in the lead of the effort to keep the Center open, says a grassroots effort to raise funds to re-open the most critical service of the Center has gone very well.

"We've received significant support from a number of people and organizations," Michelle Horton said. "The Madison diocese has offered support, and donations received from concerned people in Dane county, and from across the Midwest, makes it possible for us to make this announcement."

CMC officials wouldn't release the donation totals yet, but said they're on their way to a $175,000 goal. An anonymous donor has pledged to match that. The diocese is giving $150,000.
