Bishop's Annual Appeal

Ministries supported by your gifts to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal are reaching out in love – together we are feeding the hungry at Saskatoon Friendship Inn, walking with the sick, the suffering and the dying through Hospital Chaplaincy, and visiting prisoners as part of Restorative Ministry. The diocesan Office of Justice and Peace continues to work with a range of community partners to advocate for justice and an end to poverty, and to work for the protection of the life and God-given dignity of each and every human person, regardless of age or ability.

The Bishop’s Annual Appeal supports Ecumenism and Catholic Family Services, and other ministries that welcome the newcomer and provide inclusive outreach, such as Deaf Ministry.

You can read about several examples of ministries funded under Building up the Church.
