Happy Easter! I hope that you and your family had a safe and wonderful Easter.

As communicated in the April 1, 2021 edition of The Archdiocesan, April 18-24, 2021 is National Volunteer Week in Canada. This is an annual event hosted and promoted by Volunteer Canada to publicly recognize and thank volunteers for their dedication and contributions. We invite and encourage you to personally acknowledge and thank the volunteers within your parish every day, but especially during this time.

To support your parish’s participation in National Volunteer Week, we have put together a campaign kit that includes:

  1. Digital “thank you” cards in colour and black & white to be emailed or printed
  2. Digital poster to be printed and displayed in the parish
  3. Web banner that can be displayed on parish website
  4. Sample messaging for a pulpit announcement and/or bulletin

These materials will be available from April 6 – April 25, 2021, on Google Drive by accessing the link below:


With deep gratitude, the Archdiocese will also recognize our volunteers by posting the Web banner to our website homepage and volunteer pages. Additionally, we will use the hashtags below to thank our volunteers during this week, and we hope that you will consider doing the same.
