“Let Us Share the Gifts that We have been Given.”

We are again preparing to embark on the Annual Eparchial Appeal.  This year the Annual Eparchial Appeal will kick-off on April 15, 2023, and wrap up on May 28, 2023.

The theme of the 2023 Annual Eparchial Appeal will be “Let us Share the Gifts that We have been Given”. The theme calls on us, as faithful stewards of God’s Grace, to be more like Jesus for others. As stewards, we joyfully worship God by giving back some of the gifts earned from Him. We have been entrusted with substantial resources and have been taught by God to put these resources to work for others. The Annual Eparchial Appeal gives us the opportunity to follow His example by sharing some of our gifts given to us so that the Eparchy can continue to provide services that will be of benefit to all the Faithful of the Eparchy.

The Catholic Church, and by extension, our Eparchy, has the most important mission of any organization in world: to preach the soul-saving Gospel of Jesus Christ. Carrying on this mission, of course, takes earthly resources. Therefore, the future sustainability of our Ukrainian Catholic Faith in Saskatchewan is dependent on a fundraising effort through the Annual Eparchial Appeal. Most of the programs and services offered through the Eparchy cannot be offered by individual Parishes because of limited resources, both financial and human. That is why it is so critical that the Faithful of our Eparchy continue to collectively ensure that the Eparchy can provide these programs to the Faithfull and the Parishes by supporting the Annual Eparchial Appeal.

Within the next two weeks you will be receiving your Annual Eparchial Appeal Letter Package in the mail, which will contain detailed information on the various initiatives and programs supported by the 2023 Annual Eparchial Appeal.

Now more than ever, it is so important to feed the spiritual needs of all the people in the Eparchy. The Annual Eparchial Appeal is an opportunity to come together as an Eparchy to serve each other, and your participation is crucial. Let us follow Christ’s example to serve each other and our community.
