UKRAINIAN CATHOLIC FOUNDATION OF SASKATCHEWAN
2021 ANNUAL EPARCHIAL APPEAL REPORT
The 2021 Annual Eparchial Appeal initiative is now complete. The UCFSask Foundation would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the effort of the many, many people involved in making the Annual Eparchial Appeal a success and say a very huge THANK YOU. We also want to extend a huge THANK YOU the Parish Priests and Volunteers at your Parish, and most importantly, to all the Parishioners who so generously contributed to the Annual Eparchial Appeal in 2021. Certainly, our success would not have been possible if it were not for the hard work, effort, commitment, and generous support to the Annual Eparchial Appeal by many people.
The total funds raised in the 2021 Annual Eparchial Appeal was $149,170. The amount rebated to Parishes that exceeded their goal totaled $1,297.50. As noted in the information provided below, the Eparchy will receive $129,170 that will be allocated towards the following Eparchial Ministries that were identified as recipients of this support. In addition, the Foundation will be allocated $20,000 as part of the financial goals identified at the onset of the 2020 Annual Eparchial Appeal to offset the expenses incurred in conducting the 2021 Annual Eparchial Appeal.

In 2021, the participation rate of the family units in the Eparchy who contributed to the Annual Eparchial Appeal was 25%, as compared to 22% in 2019, 22% in 2018, 22% in 2017, 30% in 2016 and 33% in 2015. The Annual Eparchial Appeal was not conducted in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
It is our hope that the participation numbers of the number of Parish Families contributing to the Annual Eparchial Appeal continues to grow in the 2022 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, for your generous support, and we hope that we can call on you again to be just as abundant, both in time and talent, during the 2022 Annual Eparchial Appeal. We will continue to stand together in faith and hope for our Church.
Blessings to All Our Faithful!
