LENTEN SHARELIFE APPEAL
LIVE THE GOSPEL BY HELPING OUR VULNERABLE SISTERS AND BROTHERS
ShareLife Sunday marks the first collection for our parish annual campaign. In the words of Cardinal Collins: “Vulnerable members of our community are relying on you and me to ensure ongoing access to the care they so desperately need. This is why it’s crucial we meet our parish campaign goal. Our goal can be met, but only if we each do our part.”
Our parish goal this year is $58,000.
You may donate to the parish campaign with an envelope at Mass or online via the Archdiocesan parish website: https://stceciliasto.archtoronto.org/ OR at sharelife.org.
Thank you for sharing as you are able.
This weekend is ShareLife Sunday
