Bridge of Hope:
Assist the helpless and needy: sponsor a child in Ukraine.
The Edmonton Eparchy in partnership with the Bridge of Hope has embarked on a charitable project entitled “Home of Hope”. It is a sanctuary and support for teenage girls, who no longer qualify for Ukrainian Government protection services, and need a safe place to work on their education and career.

Catholic Missions in Canada:
Not all missions are foreign missions. It may surprise many Canadian Catholics, but they don’t have to look far: some of the poorest and neediest missions served by the Church can be found here in Canada.
