…if you share your food with the hungry and give relief to the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the dark, and your night will be like noon.
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Over the past few weeks, I have been learning about some important changes to Project Advance this year, which I would like to highlight for you.
Archdiocesan funding priorities from this year’s Appeal will be directed to a newly established Crisis Response Fund, to help vulnerable individuals and families during this time of pandemic, alongside other ministries of evangelization and outreach.
The Archdiocesan goal for Project Advance has been reduced to $1,625,000, so our target at St. Ann has been reduced from $59,000 to $29,500.
The Appeal will officially launch during the week of June 8th when past supporters of Project Advance can expect to receive a letter from Archbishop Miller. More details of the Appeal will be published in the BC Catholic and will be available at www.projectadvance.ca
With your support during this very unusual time, Project Advance will again meet the needs of both our parish community and the Archdiocese. God bless you and all those in our parish family.
Fr. Eduardo Quintero, CS
