All donations up to $1 250 000 are matched!

Stand With Ukraine!

Four generous families from Alberta, the Parish of St. Stephen, and Crystal Glass have pledged to match all donations in support of humanitarian aid in Ukraine up to $1,250,000. Help us meet this goal.

Bishop David directed these funds to “follow the people” and provide for those who need aid such as food, shelter, medicine, spiritual, and emotional support. The majority of donations are sent directly to CNEWA who then distributes funds to organizations that support families in need, including the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church and Caritas. Several of our donors have offered their donations to support the displaced Ukrainian families escaping the violence of war and finding a safe space in Alberta. Funding programs are being developed and will be implemented through our parishes and Eparchial organizations to directly support the needs of the displaced families fleeing violence.
