2003 Collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada

Monday, August 25 2003

The Bishops’ Collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada will be held in most parishes on Sunday, September 28, 2003. All parishes across the country have received a leaflet explaining the Collection. The Communications Service of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB), which prepares the material for the collection campaign, is making the information in the pamphlet available online so that parishes can use the material in their church bulletins, and diocesan communications offices and Church media may use the material to promote the collection.
