Ukraine Humanitarian Relief 

For those who wish to donate to assist those suffering in Ukraine, the Archdiocese of Toronto will channel donations to the Office for Refugees, Archdiocese of Toronto (ORAT) and the Catholic Near East Welfare Association (CNEWA). CNEWA is a papal agency with a long history of humanitarian relief; it is currently working in Eastern Europe, providing Ukrainians with food, shelter, medicine and transportation to safe locations. ORAT is Canada’s largest private Sponsorship Agreement Holder, which helps bring hundreds of newcomers to our country each year; it will use donations to bring Ukrainian refugees to Canada as soon as possible.

Your donation will help Ukrainians who are beset by violence in Eastern Europe and will help some of them find a new home in Canada.

Those wishing to help may do so in one of the following ways:

  • Online through the Archdiocese of Toronto website: 
  • by phone through the Development Office – 416-934-3411 
  • Through the parish, making cheques payable to:
