Since its foundation in 1943, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) has played an important role in helping the Church be present and active, nationally and internationally. The CCCB is the country’s national assembly of Catholic Bishops, including the Bishops of the Eastern Catholic Churches. It supports the Bishops in their pastoral ministry, in the fields of catechesis, ecumenism, interfaith relations, social justice, liturgy, doctrine, relations with indigenous peoples, international aid and family life. The Collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada will be held on September 29 and 30. Through your contribution to the Collection, you too can collaborate with the Bishops in their ministry to teach, sanctify and govern.

Archdiocesan Goal: $ 30,500. # of Pledges: 114. Total Amount Collected: $ 34,772.
