In 2015, The American Heritage Girls National Catholic Committee elected its first Episcopal Moderator, Bishop James D. Conley from the Catholic Diocese of Lincoln. His Excellency will provide spiritual guidance while presiding over and representing the AHG NCC. Learn more about the Episcopal Moderator here.

“It is important to foster a culture of evangelization with the young people of our diocese, which helps them deepen their faith and share it with others.  To accomplish this, we prioritize those programs that best teach our youth to be disciples of Jesus Christ, instill Christian values and nurture Christian virtues. Among the programs the Diocese of Marquette plans to support and charter now and into the future is the American Heritage Girls.”  ~Most Reverend John F. Doerfler, Bishop of Marquette, MI

Programming to encourage a girl’s Catholic faith

In addition to AHG’s Christ-centered program, there are a number of additional opportunities for girls to grow in their Catholic faith.

  • AHG’s Catholic Faith Awards

“We are pleased to offer the new Catholic Faith Awards to American Heritage Girls here in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. As soon as they were available, we reviewed the materials, and endorsed these new Awards as a way to foster a girl’s faith development and to weave the Catholic belief and practice throughout a girl’s AHG experience, from Tenderheart to Patriot.” -Gary Pokorny, Director of Catechesis, Archdiocese of Milwaukee
