Bishops’ Collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada – 24.09.2017
Each year, during the last weekend of September, a special collection is held in most parishes across Canada to support the national and international pastoral work of the Bishops. Known as the Bishops’ Collection for the Nededs of the Church in Canada, this collection helps the Bishops fulfill their obligations as members of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB).
Founded 65 years ago and officially recognized by the Holy See in 1948, the CCCB is the assembly of all Canadian Eastern and Roman Catholic Bishops. Since October 2007, its president is Most Rev. V. James Weisgerber, Archbishop of Winnipeg. At the end of his two-year term, according to a principle of alternance, a French Sector Bishop will become President.
In addition to maintaining a close relationship with Pope Benedict XVI and the dicasteries of the Holy See, the CCCB works closely with other Episcopal Conferences throughout the world, and especially those on the American continent. Through the work of Commissions and committees, it deals with various questions that affect the whole of the Catholic Church and Canadian society.
The Bishops of Canada THANK YOU for your generosity.
