2019 Grant from Ex Corde Foundation

Recently our diocese received a grant from the Ex Corde Foundation of the Diocese of Hamilton.  This grant will assist in the funding of the pastoral ministry of the Innu Aboriginal Parishes of Our Lady of the Snows in Sheshatshui and Tshukuminu St. Anne in Natuashish for 2019.

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 funding of the 2019 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 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.
