2017 Grant from Ex Corde Foundation
This Foundation focuses on finding ways to help parishes, organizations and communities to prosper. Our diocese had requested a grant from them to assist in the 2017 funding of the pastoral ministry of the Innu Aboriginal Parishes of Our Lady of the Snows in Sheshatshui and Tshukuminu St. Anne in Natuashish.
The main component of the cost of ministry in these communities is the salary, benefits, vehicles and living costs of the clergy and religious who are in ministry there.
The diocese receives financial assistance in funding this ministry from a number of individuals, Religious Communities and from Catholic Missions in Canada. We are very grateful to all these groups and individuals, as well as to the Ex Corde Foundation, for their generous financial support.
