Collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada
Why is there such a collection? Every year, the Bishops of Canada make an appeal for financial assistance to support their work and the work of each diocese by means of the Collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada. The annual Collection allows each diocese to meet its financial obligations to the regional episcopal assemblies and to the national episcopal Conference. “Any additional revenues raised help the diocese support its own diocesan pastoral programs and other activities,” Through your contribution to the Collection, you too can collaborate with the Bishops in their ministry to teach, sanctify and govern.
