  Bishops’ Collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada
Today, a special collection is held in parish communities across the country to support the pastoral work of the Bishops nationally and internationally. Known as the Bishops Collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada this collection helps dioceses pay their annual contribution to the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB).
Founded more than 65 years ago, the CCCB is the assembly of all the Bishops of Canada, including those of the Eastern Catholic Churches. In addition to assisting in consultations with the Holy Father and the various departments of the Holy See, the CCCB works in close partnership with other Episcopal Conferences around the world and in particular with those in the Americas. Through the work of its commissions and committees, it is involved in the issues that affect the life of the Church today and shape society. The Bishops of Canada wish to thank you in advance for your generosity.

My five year old son squealed with delight when he opened his birthday present from his grandmother.
It was a water pistol. He promptly ran to the sink to fill it.
“Mom,” I said. I’m surprised at you.
“Don’t you remember how we used to drive you crazy with water pistols?”
My mom smiled and said, “Yes, I remember.”
