2017 Annual Eparchial Appeal Report – as of December 31, 2017
The total funds raised in the 2017 Annual Eparchial Appeal was $160,367.09. The amount rebated to six parishes that exceeded their goal totaled $28,380.78. As noted in information presented below, the Eparchy will receive $111,986.33 that will be allocated towards the following Eparchial Ministries that were identified as recipients of this support. In addition, BBESSI will be allocated $20,000 as part of the financial goals identified at the onset of the 2017 Annual Eparchial Appeal.
In 2017, there was a participation rate of 22% of the family units in the Eparchy who contributed to the Annual Eparchial Appeal, as compared to 30% in 2016 and 33% in 2015. It is our hope that this number will grow in the 2018 Annual Eparchial Appeal. We are hopeful that more Parishioners will see the important significance that their donation will make in the growth and continuance of our Ukrainian Catholic Church and Faith in Saskatchewan.
Thank you, again, to the Eparchial Appeal Coordinators, Volunteers, Parish Priests and Parishioners for your generous support, and we hope that we can call on you again to be just as supportive during the 2018 Annual Eparchial Appeal. We will continue to stand together in faith and hope for our Church.
Blessings to all!
