THE PILLARS TRUST CAMPAIGN: THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

Through the generosity of the English-speaking Catholic community of Montreal, the Pillars Trust Fund (since 1972), has been funding religious services and spiritual programs considered essential by our supporting community.  Pillars Trust was established on three founding ‘pillars’: The Diocesan Priesthood Guild – supporting seminarian(s) and priests’ activities; The Newman Centre – providing Catholic students from here and abroad a spiritual home and presence – away from home; and Adult Religious Education Services – forming and informing Catholics in their faith.  From these founding principles and over the years, many other services and programs were created and developed and they too have been of great benefit to the community (visit: www.pillarstrust.org).  The 2016 Fall/Winter campaign has generated $151,000 towards our goal of $200,000 by the end of June 2017.  We are grateful and appreciative of all donations received.  Our community efforts are your efforts – help us (please) to reach our goal.  We are a Roman Catholic organization supporting activities which promote the spirit of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We pray that you keep us strong as we respond financially to our community’s needs.  Blessings to all!  And Thank You.
