FUNDRAISING FOR THE PAPAL VISIT
- 29, 2022
Edmonton - Quebec - Iqaluit
We are delighted to share the
joy of the upcoming pastoral visit by Pope Francis to Canada
on July 24-29, 2022. This visit will be one of healing, hope
and reconciliation that we hope will be a watershed moment
for the Indigenous Peoples of this land and the Church’s
relationship with them.
Vatican has confirmed that the Holy Father will utilize
three hubs for the visit to Canada: Edmonton, Quebec City
and Iqaluit. It will be a much more modest visit than a
usual papal pilgrimage, due to the Holy Father’s age,
health, and mobility issues. ● Still, there are costs
associated with the visit, including lodging and event
security, event production costs and site logistics. National organizers
estimate the total cost of the visit at $15 million,
and are working to secure support from all levels of
government as well as the private sector.
There will be two pew collections within Archdiocese of
Edmonton to help with these costs. The first will be June
18-19, prior to National Indigenous Peoples Day
on June 21. The second collection will be July 23-24. Pope
Francis arrives in Canada on July 24. Donations also may be
Take a moment during your busy days to remove
yourself once a month from that business of today’s life and come
and spend some quality time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament in
St. Matthew Church. Prayer and meditation before our Lord in the
Blessed Sacrament are great ways to
spend some special time with
Jesus. You can ask Him for graces for yourself or for
loved ones, reflect on His Word, or just keep Him company silently!
Offer your precious time to Him - come for Adoration. Will you spend
an hour with Jesus? Will you come?
