2013collection en(CCCB – Ottawa)... The Collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada will be held in parishes across the country on September 27 and 28, 2014. In his letter to parishes, the Most Reverend Paul-André Durocher, Archbishop of Gatineau and President of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB), states: "This year we have several reasons to celebrate our common journey in faith and evangelization. Pope Francis proclaimed two of the founders of the Church in Canada saints of the Universal Church: Bishop François de Laval and Mother Marie of the Incarnation. Many pilgrims are travelling to Quebec City for the 350th anniversary of the Parish Notre-Dame de Québec, North America's first Catholic parish outside Spanish territories."

durocheArchbishop Durocher concludes his letter with the following invitation to all the faithful: "By contributing to the Collection, you collaborate with us in our ministry and in following the steps of Saint Francois de Laval and Saint Marie of the Incarnation who also gave a hand to helping the Gospel. Thank you for assuming your part in this wonderful project of evangelization and faith in your own region and throughout Canada."

In order to promote the Collection and the work of the Episcopal Conference, the CCCB is making available an electronic version of the promotional kit on its website, www.cccb.ca. The electronic kit can be used by the parishes, Church media and diocesan communications services and includes the following documents:
