Together We Serve, also known as the Archdiocesan Annual Appeal, is one means available to parishioners in which we can participate in the Church’s work of charity. Through our gifts to Catholic Social Services, Development and Peace, Evangelization of Nations, Needs of the Church in the Holy Land, our northern twin diocese (Mackenzie-Fort Smith), and the Pope’s Pastoral Works, we can bring the Gospel message to those on the peripheries. Through our support of St. Joseph Seminary, St. Joseph’s College, Newman Theological College, the Needs of the Canadian Church, and St. Joseph Priest’s Foundation of Edmonton, we can help serve those who answer the call to ministry, those who are the voice of the Church in our Canadian society, and those who have dedicated their lives to the service of others.
While the TWS campaign is primarily promoted during Lent–the season of almsgiving–parishioners may wish spread their giving over the year as suits their personal situation.
