Bishop’s Collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada

The annual Collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada will be held in most parishes for the weekend of September 24 – 25, 2011. The funds raised will be sent to our Archdiocese, which will use these revenues to help pay its annual contribution to the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB). Through the work of the Bishops of Canada, who are its members, the Conference is involved in national and international areas of protection of human life, liturgy, and catechesis, pastoral activity, including ecumenical and interfaith relations, social justice, aid to developing countries, and collaboration with Aboriginal Peoples. The Bishops of Canada wish to thank you in advance for your generosity.
