Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I am sharing this information with you on behalf of The Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Edmonton, and in prayerful support for the Ukrainian people.

The Ukrainian Catholic Church in Canada has partnered with the Canadian branch of the Papal charity, The Catholic Near East Welfare Association (CNEWA),  to provide immediate humanitarian support for the people of Ukraine.

Donations can also be made through the Edmonton Eparchy site.

With the ongoing eight-year old conflict, and with the threat of further invasion by Russia, donations to CNEWA will help equip local Caritas centres to assist millions of struggling families, including those families who are displaced, in desperate need for food, shelter, medical attention, and more.

Please pray. Stay informed. And if you are able, please consider donating.

Let us pray for peace in Ukraine.

God bless

On behalf of Archbishop Richard Smith and Bishop David Motiuk,

Rev. Jim Corrigan

Vicar General
