“Remember us, O Lord…”

This weekend marks the kick-off to our 2024 and 9th Annual Eparchial Appeal.

The theme of the 2024 Annual Eparchial Appeal will be “Remember us, O Lord, …”. Through the efforts of the Annual Eparchial Appeal, we are asking God to remember us – to rejoin, to reconnect, to reattach us so that we can work together for the greater good of all in our Eparchy. For, we are the Eparchy of Saskatoon. We are all responsible for the health and well-being of the members of the Eparchy. God has given us gifts and His Blessings that will allow us to make good on responsibility. The Annual Eparchial Appeal is an opportunity to come together as an Eparchy to serve each other, and your participation is crucial.

Thanks to your generosity, prayers and your kind support over the past eight years, the Eparchial Appeal has been successful in raising just over $964,425 for the Eparchy, St. Mathew Clergy Society and the Bishop Roborecki Foundation. In addition, the Parishes/Missions also received another $152,360 through the Parish Rebate Program. Your support of the Appeal continues to nurture, grow, preserve, and strengthen our Ukrainian Catholic Faith and to make our parishes vibrant. A heartfelt and sincere THANK YOU for your support.

The 2024 Annual Eparchial Appeal initiatives will be the same as they were last year: Ukrainian Catholic Religious Education Centre; Eparchial Communications Officer; St. Matthew Clergy Society; Bishop Roborecki Foundation; and Chancery Office Support. During each Sunday of the Eparchial Appeal we will highlight each of these initiatives with more details and how they are so essential to our Eparchy and why they are worthy of our support.

In the 2023 Annual Eparchial Appeal only about 20% of the Faithful of the Eparchy supported the Appeal. We are prayerfully hopeful that you consider supporting the 2024 Eparchial Appeal to significantly increase that average.

Therefore, we humbly and graciously ask those Parish Families who can do so to please make a gift of a $125 on behalf of your family, plus another one or two gifts of $125 on behalf of another family who may not be in a financial position to donate to the Appeal. Of course, the Foundation would be most grateful for a gift of any amount.

In the next week or so, you will be receiving your Annual Eparchial Appeal Letter Package in the mail, which will contain detailed information on the various Eparchial initiatives and programs supported by the 2024 Appeal. As it has in the past eight years, your gift to the 2024 Appeal will make a significant difference and will serve as a powerful witness of God’s love and mercy.

With gratitude and appreciation, we ask you to please find it in your heart to support the 2024 Annual Eparchial Appeal.
Please call the Foundation Office at 306-653-0183, ext. 223 if you have any questions.
