2019 Annual Eparchial Appeal
– Kick-off Weekend: April 27/28, 2019
“Whoever Sows GENEROUSLY, Reaps GENEROUSLY”
This weekend marks the kick-off to our 2019 and 5th Annual Eparchial Appeal.
The Appeal will run to June 9th, 2019.
Our theme for this year is “Whoever Sows Generously, Reaps Generously”. We already know that our Ukrainian Catholic Faithful in our Eparchy indeed sow generously in all aspects of their life. We are humbly and respectfully asking you to share a small portion of the fruits of their labor to help promote our Faith and our Ukrainian Catholic Church in Saskatchewan. As in past years, the funds raised in the 2019 Annual Eparchial Appeal will go towards funding the costs of the programs offered through our Eparchial Ministries.
Over the next few weeks, you will have the opportunity to learn more about our Eparchial Ministries and how they contribute to create Vibrant Parishes as a place to encounter the Living Christ. Next week the 2019 Annual Eparchial Appeal Video will demonstrate just how important it will be to earn your support of the Appeal and the Eparchial Ministries programs.
In the next week or so, you will be receiving your Annual Eparchial Appeal Letter Package in the mail, which will contain detailed information on the various Eparchial ministries and programs supported by the 2019 Appeal. As it has in the last four years, your gift to the 2019 Appeal will make a significant difference, and will serve as a powerful witness of God’s love and mercy
The 2019 Annual Eparchial Goal is set at $250,000. Each Parish in the Eparchy is assigned an Eparchial Appeal goal based on the number of parish families in the Parish. This may seem like a big number, however, when broken down to an amount per each Parish Family in the Eparchy, it amounts to slightly less than $100 per each Parish Family.
We have added a new twist to the 2019 Annual Eparchial Appeal. We wish to reward those Parish families that share their resources at the higher level. For example, Parish Families who make a financial contribution to the 2019 Annual Eparchial Appeal of $251 or more will receive a very extensive and deeply profound prayer book entitled, “Beneath the Mantle of Your Mercy”. We refer to this book as the “Operating Manual for Ukrainian Catholics”. Those Parish Families making a contribution of between $155 – $250 will receive a beautiful Pope Francis Rosary and a Rosary Prayer book.
With gratitude and appreciation, we ask you to please find it in your heart to support the 2019 Annual Eparchial Appeal. Please call the Foundation Office at 306-653-0183, EXT 223 if you have any questions, or refer to our website at www.ucfsask.org for more information.
