Why contribute to the Mission of the Catholic Church of Montreal?

In fact, doesn’t it have to do with who Jesus Christ is: “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” (Mt 16:13) Contributing to the Mission of the Catholic Church of Montreal answers somehow that question.

The Mission requires obviously grand needs and we seek the support of all our brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ. We strongly believe that we can, together, make a difference in our society in the name of our faith.

The Annual Collection of the Catholic Church of Montreal began in 1989. This fundraising event starts on the first Sunday after Easter and lasts three weeks. It supports social action ministry within our diocesan Christian community.

You can also contribute to this collection all year long, at the moment you see fit!

By contributing to the Annual Collection, you support the following projects:

  • To manage « Le Pont » (The Bridge), a centre sheltering more than 20 people on a continuous basis.
  • To accompany the 10 000 agricultural migrants who arrived in 2017.
  • To sponsor more than 703 refugees and to follow up on the 351 files submitted.

Diocesan Centre for Marriage, Life and the Family

  • To offer training sessions, retreats, pilgrimages, sports tournaments to the youth of the diocese. Visit their website

 
The Annual Collection sponsors pastoral events and various diocesan projects vital to the support, training and relief of the people living in the diocese of Montreal.
There is no such thing as a small donation: giving with an open heart is what counts. Jesus, who gave us everything, counts on our generosity, so that his Church can accomplish its Mission in the hearts and souls of men and women today.

Thank you for your generosity!
