Resurrection of Christ
Nicolas Bertin, The Resurrection of Christ

Jesus said to her, “Mary!” She turned and said to him in Hebrew, “Rabbouni!”  Jesus said to her “Do not hold on to me, because I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and say to them, “I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.”

Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord”; and she told them that he said these things to her. – John 20. 16-18

May the Hope and Joy of Easter remain in your heart and in your family forever.  –  Fr. Joseph Tap Tran, Pastor

Living the Gospel through immediate mental health services

Mental health problems can escalate if not addressed quickly. That’s why the five Catholic Family Services agencies in the Archdiocese of Toronto now offer walk-in counselling. This initiative can often meet clients’ need without requiring longer term counselling. Clients report a clinically significant increase in confidence that they can tackle their problems. For some agencies, ShareLife is the sole funder of this important program. By supporting ShareLife, you’re helping restore hope to those in crisis.

May 5 is ShareLife Sunday. Please give generously.
