17 March 2019 – Second Sunday of Lent

“Living the Gospel” by supporting ShareLife agencies…

“As we begin our ShareLife campaign, we are encouraged to live the Gospel in all we do. How do we demonstrate that in our community? Living the Gospel may mean helping single mothers to care for their newborn children, or being available to families facing difficulties, or welcoming refugee families to our community. For 43 years, countless individuals have experienced the compassionate care offered by our agencies. Please support our annual archdiocesan appeal during this Lenten season!” —Thomas Cardinal Collins, Archbishop of Toronto.

March 31st is ShareLife Sunday. Please give generously.
