2021 Collection for the Needs of the Church in CanadaThursday, September 16 2021
The annual Collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada will be held on 25 and 26 September 2021. This annual charitable initiative assists the Bishops in their ministry of accompanying, teaching, guiding, sanctifying and caring for the Church in Canada.
As part of their episcopal ministry, the Bishops will continue to work together on relations with Indigenous peoples, important doctrinal and ethical questions; ecumenical initiatives and interreligious dialogue; international relations; evangelization, faith education and catechesis; questions of social justice; responsible ministry, and the development of a culture of life and family.
In order to promote the collection and the collective work of the Bishops through their Episcopal Conference as well as the Regional Episcopal Assemblies, the CCCB is making the promotional materials available on its website:
- Message from the CCCB President to pastors and collaborators in pastoral ministry;
- Two short texts intended to be adapted or printed in parish bulletins on 19 and 26 September, or distributed by other means of communication such as websites and emails;
- Suggested prayers of the faithful for the weekends of 19 and 26 September.
