Aid to the Church in Need Pamphlets
ACN is an international pontifical organization that has helped the poor and persecuted Church since 1947, focusing much of its support on Christians in the Middle East who are persecuted because of their faith, and where the Church is too poor to fulfill her mission. ACN offers help in the way of shelter, food, medical support and comfort to those in need. It helps support schooling for refugee children who, without education, may not even dream of a potentially better future. Pamphlets for Aid to the Church in Need can be found in the information box near the office counter.
Making your Will
Our legal title is “Roman Catholic Archbishop of Vancouver as represented by Canadian Martyrs Parish.”
Thinking of the Seafarers at Christmas
Please extend an act of God's love to sailors who will be spending their Christmas in Vancouver, away from their families. Christmas gifts are a warm, caring and loving way to make a sailor's loneliness more tolerable. Tired of shopping? Just make a cheque out to “Archdiocese of Vancouver,” put “Sailors Gift” on the memo line and we’ll do the shopping for you, bringing a gift to the sailors. Please mail your cheque to 150 Robson Street, c/o Finance Office. A charitable receipt will be issued for donations of $20 or more. Donations can also be made online at rcav.org/seafarers/
