CALLED TOGETHER – GIVING, SHARING, SERVING
Along with all parishes and missions throughout the diocese, today we kick off the Annual Diocesan Appeal: “Called Together – Giving, Sharing, Serving.”
Called Together supports the mission of the local Church across our diocese. Your gift to Called Together is one way that you can practice stewardship and participate in the mission of the Church. The diocesan goal has been slightly increased to $250,000 this year, far short of the usual $400,000.
Funds raised will continue to help those parishes, missions and ministries across the diocese who
continue to face ongoing challenges and need our support. Part of the increased goal will go to programs and ministries suspended during the difficulties of COVID and are now beginning again.
Our Parish Goal is: $ 13,986.00
This year, the diocese is also collecting funds for the BC Bishops’ appeal to support Healing and Reconciliation. This appeal is separate from Called Together and aims to provide funds for projects that support healing and reconciliation between indigenous and non-indigenous peoples. In prior years, the diocese has tried to meet this need through programs such as Returning to Spirit, the Rose Prince Pilgrimage and through the work of our priests and religious involved in indigenous ministry.
After we began last year’s Appeal, the Canadian Bishops agreed to support a national campaign to raise 30 million dollars in support of healing and reconciliation efforts. The diocesan goal for our portion of
that $30 million is $147,000; half of which has been raised. The monies raised in our diocese
will be used to support healing and reconciliation efforts in our diocese. We look to the generosity of everyone to make a meaningful contribution to promote this vital work.
The form in the Called Together package allows you to designate how much you would like to direct
to the Diocesan Annual Appeal and how much to the Healing and Reconciliation appeal.
We thank you for your continued generous support.
