Emergency collection for Syrian refugees


Archbishop Miller has approved an emergency collection at all Masses the weekend of Oct. 4 for the Syrian refugees. Funds raised in the collection will be distributed among three Catholic agencies with operating programs assisting Syrian refugees in their countries of asylum: the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace, the Catholic Near East Welfare Association, and Aid to the Church in Need Canada. Funds raised will be matched by the federal government. If you would like to donate immediately to any of the organizations, visitrcav.org/prayer-and-humanitarian-appeal.
