Donate to the Catholic Church of Montreal

Donate

Let us be clear: spiritually, the Church lives through the Holy Spirit, but materially, since she has nothing to sell, the Church lives off of donations (material or monetary) received from her Christian members. In all countries where she is established, the greater the number of Christians who support the Church, the better her material situation is, which allows her, among other things, to redistribute her resources to those in need. To help her achieve her religious mission of salvation, we neeed your help! Here is how you can contribute.

The Catholic Church in Montreal is not immune to the religious crisis experienced by the Church in the whole Western world; here as elsewhere, the rate of Sunday observance (presence in church for Sunday Mass) as well as the demand for sacraments (baptism, first Communion, marriage, funerals, etc.) has plummeted very sharply in recent decades, and this decrease has had a very significant impact on the finances of the diocese (and all its parishes), forcing it to reduce its administrative and pastoral staff and services.

Such was the context in which the first Annual Campaign of the Catholic Church in Montreal was held in 1989. It begins on the first Sunday after Easter and lasts three weeks. This Collection, heavily publicized in the Church and in civil society, is used to gather funds to sustain the primary mission of the Church, yesterday and today: her missionary (or pastoral) spiritual and religious action in all of the Christian communities of our diocese.

The official Annual Collection lasts only three weeks, but you can contribute to it at the most convenient time of the year for you!

No donation is too small: what matters is to give with your heart. Jesus, who gave us everything, relies on your generosity for the Church to continue her mission in the hearts and souls of today’s men and women.

Our previous campaigns:

 

A donation of listed shares (or other securities such as bonds, mutual fund units or stock options) is beneficial for a donor who wishes to make a donation to the Archdiocese while preserving his cash assets. This type of donation is particularly financially profitable when it consists of shares or titles whose value has considerably increased, since this gain in capital is not taxable.

To discuss the options available to you, please contact Mr. Benoït Cardin by email or by phone at (514) 925-4300, ext. 342.

Planned donations means an amount that you want to give to the Archdiocese of Montreal after your death by way of bequests and/or life insurance.

To discuss the options available to you, please contact Mr. Benoït Cardin by email or by phone at (514) 925-4300, ext. 342.
