Catholic Social Services
Gianna Centre provides information, support, and advocacy to those who are facing an unplanned or crisis pregnancy.
We held our Uplift: Day of Mercy event on Saturday, October 1, supporting those in need within the Edmonton community. Approximately 800 guests came down to St. Alphonsus Parish and Eastwood Community League, along 118 Avenue, where they enjoyed live entertainment and fun activities for the entire family.
In support of our annual Fall Sign of Hope Appeal, Catholic Social Services is launching 22 Days of Hope. Throughout October, this series will highlight the 20 ministries that count on the generous contributions to the Sign of Hope in order to serve the most vulnerable and marginalized within the central Alberta region.
It is the Spirit of God who patiently, but persistently, inspires us toward goodness and greater fulfillment; it is He who quietly resides within us, always.
"The doors that we open at Catholic Social Services are precisely doors of mercy that enable an all-important transition for the people we serve. A transition from what can be very tough places into a space of welcome, of love, and of assistance."
