Learn how...


(The common good…) It means protecting people, showing loving concern for each and every person, especially children, the elderly, those in need, who are often the last we think about.” 

Pope Francis


Pope Francis encourages us to show loving concern for each other, and in so doing care for those who are often forgotten. As a Catholic community,  how does the challenge to show this love for our neighbour manifest itself across our archdiocese?  The ShareLife campaign is an integral part of the work of the church in the Archdiocese of Toronto.  Catholic Outreach in Justice and Love is one of the core directions of our Pastoral Plan, and ShareLife is one of the ways that we manifest this in our archdiocese. 


The results of the 2015 ShareLife campaign have decreased significantly when compared to our previous year’s achievement.  A reduction in our annual appeal could affect the resources available to our agencies to provide services to those in need at a time when more is being asked of them.


Through ShareLife, we reach out to serve the marginalized in our communities, provide for the work of the Office of Catholic Youth, the Office for Refugees, and chaplaincy programs in our hospitals and nursing homes, support the education of our clergy through St. Augustine’s and Redemptoris Mater seminaries and Serra House, and extend the hands of Christ to those in need across the world through Development and Peace, the Pastoral Mission Fund, and Canadian Food for Children.

 

For many of these agencies, ShareLife funding represents a large component of their annual budget, making it possible to provide critical programs and services to the greater community

 

We are all called to "show loving concern to each and every person" and care for those who are most vulnerable in our community. I am asking you to respond by making a contribution to ShareLife before the July 31 end of our campaign.  Our collective support will indeed make a difference, helping to work wonders in the lives of those within our community, and the needs of the church around the world.



Yours sincerely in the Lord
