Altum gives priority to assisting organizations in Canada that are inspired by the message of the Opus Dei Prelature.

What is Opus Dei?

Opus Dei (Latin for Work of God ) is part of the Catholic Church. Its mission is to spread the Christian message that every single person is called to holiness. Holiness, in fact, means following Jesus Christ, imitating Him in thoughts, feelings, words and deeds.

Opus Dei teaches that any work, if carried out in the spirit of Jesus Christ, competently and honestly, with the aim of loving God and serving others, can be “sanctified”: what matters is the love that is put into work, not its human importance. The work of a hairdresser or a banker can be as holy as that of a priest.
