STM gives 10% of offerings to the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter for mission and outreach. We do not take up second collections for various other good works but we do call people’s attention to Catholic charities from time to time.
Through the new year, beginning in Advent, we will be encouraging donations to ACN, a worthy charity which is supporting Christians in the Middle East who are being systematically brutalized, killed and forced out as refugees. There has been very limited press coverage of their suffering.
It is our hope that many of the 25,000 Syrians reportedly coming to Canada will be from this persecuted minority – our brothers and sisters in Christ who are in great need.
