Bishop's Annual Appeal 2018 - Our Faith in Action - As of Dec. 5, gifts to the Bishop's Annual Appeal total $1,188,159 or 91.8 per cent of this year's goal. Thank you to all who have supported the Appeal in prayer, as volunteers, and as donors. With just $106,841 to go in order to reach the 2018 goal, we encourage anyone who has not yet donated to the Bishop's Annual Appeal to help us to help others -- donations made before Dec. 31 will qualify for a tax receipt for this calendar year. The diocese of Saskatoon is able to bless many, thanks to support of the Appeal from the faithful. Gifts to the Appeal mean that Search retreats are giving youth an opportunity to nurture their relationship with Jesus Christ. Your gifts help us to reach out to those who are grieving, those who are sick and alone in our hospitals, to those in prison trying to find new paths. Your donation ensures that catechesis of children, adult faith formation and education of future priests is supported in our diocese. Your generosity makes a difference in many lives and in our faith community. Thank you!

* Western Religions in Society and Culture

Online course offering through St. Thomas More College – register through PAWS or call 306 966-8900 for more information - RLST 112.3 — Dr. Lesya Sabada

In order to have a rounded education, one must have an awareness of world religions. To learn about world religions is to increase one's cultural literacy - the objective that lies at the heart of this course. The religious traditions examined in this course, indigenous faiths, the Abrahamic traditions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam are foundational aspects of cultures around the globe.  Religion plays a crucial role in shaping, transforming, and transmitting cultures. Interacting with other cultural aspects – politics, economics, aesthetics - religions is a potent force in culture, in ways both constructive and destructive. Knowing about them is crucial for negotiating our complex world.

Have you moved lately? Changed your Marital Status? Changed your Name? Attending a new Parish? You can update your personal information on a secure and confidential area on the Diocese of Saskatoon Catholic Foundation website (www.dscf.ca ).  Reasons why giving us updated information is essential are:

  1. For you to receive a Charitable Tax Receipt following a donation: According to Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA), for a charity to send you a charitable tax receipt the charity needs your first and last name plus your home mailing address. As an individual donor, the charity should use the individual’s home address, and when the donor is a business (e.g. a corporation), then the charity would use the business’ address. These are the addresses most likely on the file with CRA for the person or business.
  2. For the diocese and your parish to best support you, we can only do so with correct information about you and your family. We are here to serve.
  3. For us to address you correctly and respectfully, to show you our gratitude, and inform you of news and events in the diocese and parishes around the diocese.

Update your information online at https://dscf.ca/content/update-your-contact-info or contact: Melissa Anaetoh, Development Assistant: (306) 659-5850, manaetoh@dscf.ca

Please note that all updated information is shared back with your parish.

We do not sell your information or use any of your information outside of the confines of church ministry, programs, and church business for and in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon and/or the Diocese of Saskatoon Catholic Foundation.
