Bishop William E. Power Trust Foundation
The late Bishop William E. Power of the Diocese of Antigonish recognized the importance of the laity in strengthening Christian faith in todays modern world. Inspired by the goals of Vatican II, Bishop Power saw the need to prepare the laity to bring their Christian faith to their homes, workplaces and cultural lives. After his death in 2003, his work to support and develop the laity is continuing through the Bishop William E. Power family charitable foundation.
The ministry of laity and the related support for lay education and formation are major signs of change in our Church. In response, a small group of Catholics came together to form the St. Thomas More Society to assist in funding lay Catholics in the diocese with formation and education programs, events and projects. We now welcome applications from lay Catholics of the diocese who wish to pursue pastoral, theological and ministerial formation and education programs or events. Application forms or any further information can be obtained by emailing

We also appeal to interested Catholics for donations to help us achieve our goal. We are an independent and free standing Society incorporated by the Province of Nova Scotia and approved with charitable status by Revenue Canada. We issue tax receipts for donations which can be sent to Leonarda MacNeil, 36 MacIsaac Road, Antigonish, NS B2G 2J9
