The Bishop's Annual Collection

Posted on: December 8th, 2017

"What Gift Have I, Worthy of a King?" takes place on Sunday, December 3.  The Appeal coincides with the Feast of Saint Nicholas, the Wonderworker, Archbishop of Myra.  Saint Nicholas is uniquely tied to Christmas, the celebration of Jesus' birth.  Early stories about Saint Nicholas carry with them the Nativity themes of love and justice.  He is characterized as a generous and pious servant of God, caring for the children and families, and providing gifts for their spiritual and physical well being.

And that's what the Ukrainian Catholic Church is all about.  Caring and providing for the faithful throughout the Province of Alberta.

Help Bishop David in spreading the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ by supporting our Eparchial ministries and offices, including: Youth ministry, Family Life Ministries, Religious Education, Liturgy Office, Vocations, Ecumenism, Social Outreach, and Marriage Tribunal.

With Christmas on our doorstep, one of the holiest times of the year, and in the spirit of Saint Nicholas, what gift do you bring now to the infant Jesus, who lays quietly and peacefully in a manager?  Thank you for your generosity!  May God bless you and your families!
