ShareLife Campaign 2019…How can you “Live the Gospel” when life is so busy?

Many people help those in need by volunteering at a local organization. But if your schedule doesn't allow for it, you can still make a huge impact in your community by supporting ShareLife-funded agencies. Our own permanent diaconate candidate Rob Sansone will speak to us at each mass this weekend about how ShareLife not only supports the Permanent Diaconate Programme at St. Augustine’s Seminary but many other worthy agencies.

Our parish goal is $215,000 and with your generosity I know that we can achieve it! Monthly pre-authorized giving (PAG) is a new and easy way to spread your ShareLife contribution over the course of a year. The ShareLife package you received by mail includes a response form with a PAG option. Simply submit a void cheque with the completed form to your parish office or drop it in the offertory basket at any time. Contact ShareLife at slife@archtoronto.org or 416-934-3411 if you have any questions about pre-authorized giving to ShareLife.

Our parish goal is $215,000 and with your generosity I know that we can achieve it! Over the next few weeks, you will hear more about how ShareLife agencies make an impact in the lives of those who need our help the most. Our own permanent diaconate candidate Rob Sansone will speak to us next weekend, March 23/24, about how ShareLife supports the Permanent Diaconate Programme at St. Augustine’s Seminary and many other worthy agencies and groups.

Next Sunday is the first ShareLife collection. Over the next week, please reflect on your ability to “Live the Gospel” by making a sacrificial gift to our parish ShareLife campaign. Thank you for supporting ShareLife!

Parish Retreat 2019: A Lenten walk with The Little Mandate: on April 1, 2, 3 at 7:00 p.m.….

We welcome Fr. Kieran Kilcommons from Madonna House to our parish to preach on the weekend of March 30/31, and to lead our Parish Lenten Retreat in reflection on The Little Mandate, a scripture-based poem written by the foundress of Madonna House Catherine Doherty. It has been a spiritual guide for Madonna House members and associates for many years.

The Little Mandate

Arise – go! Sell all you possess. Give it directly, personally to the poor. Take up My cross (their cross) and follow Me, going to the poor, being poor, being one of them, one of Me.
Little – be always little! Be simple, poor, childlike. Preach the Gospel with your life – without compromise!
Listen to the Spirit. He will lead you. Do little things exceedingly well for love of Me.
Love…love…love, never counting the cost. Go into the marketplace and stay with Me.
Pray, fast. Pray always, fast. Be hidden. Be a light to your neighbour’s feet.
Go without fears into the depths of men’s hearts. I shall be with you. Pray always. I will be your rest.

Join us on…

Monday, April 1 at 7:00 p.m.… Arise-Go: Called by the Father to be a pilgrim
Tuesday, April 2 at 7:00 p.m.…Take up my cross - their Cross: Journeying with Christ, in Christ, for Christ
Wednesday, April 3 at 7:00 p.m.…Listen to the Spirit: The Spirit shows us the Way

For your consideration during Lent 2019…

Reconciliation in Our Parish Schools…

During these Lenten weekdays we are visiting each of our parish schools (including Loyola Catholic Secondary School) to offer all our students from Grades 3 to 12 an opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Please keep them in your prayers, and why not consider going to confession yourselves during this season of Lent!
