Over $2 500 000 raised for Ukraine, help us reach $3 000 000!

Stand With Ukraine!

The parishioners, faithful and friends of the Eparchy of Edmonton remain steadfast in their support for the people of Ukraine through their generous donations and prayers. Together we have raised over $2,500,000 which helps treat the wounded, feed the hungry and fund eparchies, parishes and the Sister Servants in Ukraine who minister to those fleeing the war-torn areas of Ukraine.

It is with gratitude that we acknowledge our four charitable families, St. Stephen’s Parish and Crystal Glass who together pledged $1,250,000 in matching donations. As the war continues, more families are separated, more people are dying and cities are being destroyed. Our Church is in pain and suffering grievous losses. We are a people of light and hope; a hope that the war will end soon. Let us pray for peace and donate generously.
