Serve One Another
In his letter to the Galatians, St. Paul reminds us: … through love, be servants of one another (Gal 5:13). This year’s Appeal theme, Serve One Another, encourages us to call to mind the needs of others, and with willing hands and compassionate hearts, to do all we can to serve one another with hope, mercy, gratitude, faith, and love.
When we keep the lights on in remote parishes and missions, we serve our neighbours. When we enact parish projects and initiatives, we serve our communities. When we educate our children in safe, clean, and bright facilities, and provide sacramental preparation and adult education, we serve our children, youth, and parents. When we support our retired clergy, we serve those who dedicated their lives to us. Through the combined work of all our hearts and hands, we serve those who need us. A donation to our Annual Appeal will help to ensure that our life as missionary disciples will have a firm financial foundation. I thank you for your prayerful consideration of your gift.
The mission never ends. The funds we raise through the Appeal help provide the programs and ministries that allow us to care for God’s family and for each other. With your loving help, we serve our neighbour, we serve each other, and we serve God. Your contribution to our Journey of Hearts & Hands Appeal is essential to our work; I am ever thankful for your support.
- 94¢ of each dollar you contribute directly assists Diocesan ministries, services, and parish projects.

- For every dollar you donated, 48¢ funded ministries and services, 46¢ funded parish projects, and 6¢ covered the administrative costs of running the Appeal.
