Invitation to the Catholics of Canada

from the President of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops

Smith_Richard-2012The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) and the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace (CCODP) are launching a joint campaign to raise emergency aid for Syrian refugees. We invite your participation. The revenues collected will assist the extensive work in the Middle East by Catholic charities and development agencies, particularly Caritas Internationalis.

Our special joint emergency campaign for Syria begins Sunday, 30 June 2013, and will continue throughout the summer. It will culminate with a day of prayer and fasting for the people of Syria and all the Middle East on Saturday, 14 September 2013, the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. All donations to the special campaign should be sent to Development and Peace by 14 September.
