Catholics making a Difference
Together We Serve is the name of the archdiocesan charitable appeal that begins in Lent each year.
This appeal has replaced the nine special collections that were previously been taken up in all of our parishes at various times throughout the year. They address a variety of needs here at home, in Canada, and abroad -- all with the common purpose to serve the missionary outreach of the Church. In its second year, Together We Serve will support:
- Catholic Social Services
- Canadian Catholic Organization for Development & Peace
- Evangelization of Nations
- Needs of the Canadian Church
- Needs of the Church in the Holy Land
- The Pope's Pastoral Works
- St. Joseph Seminary and Newman Theological College
- St. Joseph's College, University of Alberta
- St. Joseph's Priests' Foundation of Edmonton
In the future, our outreach to others may grow even further. This Lent, we are asked to listen carefully and prayerfully to how God is calling us to the ministry of charity and justice. Please give generously to your parish collection.
