2024 Family Event at Plamann Park

Please bring your family to an event we’re hosting at Plamann Park. It’s north of Appleton with 257 acres of trails, scenic hills and many activities for you and your family. Join other families, seminarians and priests from across the diocese in fellowship, sharing a meal and some quality family time. This event is sponsored by the wonderful donors of Esto Vir so please consider joining us for a few hours. Whether you’ve been to our events before or this is something new and it is a step outside of your comfort zone, we want you to come to this event.

Please register using the form below so we know how much food/drink to plan for.


All men and their families, regardless of their stage in life, are invited to this event. The purpose is to gather with seminarians, priests, and other religious members of the diocese for a shared meal, genuine conversations, and the cultivation of real relationships. We aim to pray together and offer support to those men who have been called to the priesthood.


Saturday, August 3 starting at 11am.


Plamann Park is north of Appleton, Wisconsin at 1375 East Broadway Drive between North Meade Street and North Ballard Road (County Road E). Esto Vir has rented the new shelter called The Hillside. It is enclosed so this will happen rain or shine!


The event starts at 11am and we will grill meat and provide water thanks to the tremendous sponsors of Esto Vir starting at 1pm. Feel free to bring a side or dish to pass.

The rented shelter has power, bathrooms, and plenty of green space in the immediate vicinity. Across the 257 acres, there is a free children’s farm, 27 hole disc golf course, nature and hiking trails, tennis and volleyball courts and a lake for swimming (additional cost). Feel free to bring your own discs, yard games or other fun activities to partake in!
