Church of Montreal
25th Annual Collection
The Lawrence River, Hubert bbq, Denis Street, Catherine Street, Lawrence Boulevard...
As a woman said the other day, “I just don't get it!” It's as though the simple removal of one word is enough to disorient us.
So what if the word Saint is representative of our heritage?
The heritage of a Church of men and women touched by Jesus Christ's message and deeply committed to our society. A Church that is present and active in our city's every neighbourhood, especially among the poor and impoverished. This same Church is reaching out to you today. Our Church’s Annual Collection will be held from April 7th to the 21st Please be generous, so that our Church may still be there tomorrow, for you and your loved ones.
~Jean-Philippe Desjeunes
Coordonator of the Annual Collection

Development & Peace: $668.00
Upkeep for the Holy Land: $397.00
