The Ministries Supported by Sharing God's Gifts

Home Missions

A vital ministry in our Archdiocese is the support of our Home Missions. These are Missions throughout the Archdiocese which serve the needs of our smaller communities including our First Nations sisters and brothers. Your gift to Sharing God's Gifts adds needed financial resources to match the enthusiasm of the parishioners of our Home Missions.

Youth and Faith Formation

Growing in faith is a life long journey. A portion of the goal of Sharing God's Gifts is used in nurturing faith among children, youth and adults. Our catechetical office supports training and formation for those involved in children's catechism programs in our parishes. The work of the Director of Education assists the educational and pastoral endeavours of our Catholic Schools. The Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry offers programs and initiatives that lead our youth to a deeper relationship with Christ and His Church through programs such as YouthLeader, retreats, workshops and the annual Youth Rally.

Priests & Seminarians

Christopher Dubois (right) were ordained to the Ministerial Priesthood for service in the Archdiocese of Winnipeg in July, 2015, by Archbishop Richard Gagnon. Sharing God's Gifts provides resources for the education and preparation of our seminarians. There are currently two seminarians studying for priesthood in the Archdiocese of Winnipeg.


The appeal also supports pensions for priests in retirement after their many years of faithful service to our church. At right, Fr. Henryk Laciak, retired since 2011, celebrates his 50th Anniversary of Priestly Ordination in April, 2015.
