Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Every year during the season of Lent, the Diocese of Calgary launches our Together in Action campaign. One of the questions that often times comes up goes something like: “Why should I support Together in Action?” Thanks to this initiative, together, we have the opportunity to create a better world and make a difference in many people’s lives as funds from our Diocesan Campaign go towards counselling, food, families, youth, and our priests (retired, deacons, and seminarians), etc.
Here’s a personal thank you from one of our projects funded by TIA at the Calgary Inter-Faith Food Bank Society. “I just wanted to say thank you for the thoughtful kid’s birthday bag you put together for my toddler! My husband picked up our hamper and it included a bag for my almost 2 year old which actually brought tears to my eyes when she opened it. Please tell the kind volunteers who put together the bags that they truly made our day. The handmade card was so sweet and I could tell someone had put a lot of care into it.”
Our parish goal this year is $72,155. Thanks to all of you who have supported our TIA Campaign in recent years – please know that your generosity truly makes a difference in the lives of many.
Fr. Jerome Lavigne
