Second ShareLife Collection –TODAY!
Together, we can work WONDERS!


Working wonders with dignity and respect for others…

As the annual charitable appeal of the Catholic community in our Archdiocese, ShareLife supports a large family of Catholic agencies that truly do feed, clothe and shelter people, care for the sick and frail, and befriend the isolated and lonely. They protect the vulnerable, guide and counsel the troubled, visit people in prison and give a voice to the voiceless. Regardless of their religious beliefs or personal background, ShareLife agencies meet people where they are, treating them with the dignity and respect we all deserve.

—Thomas Cardinal Collins, Archbishop of Toronto

Today is ShareLife Sunday. Please give generously. You can work wonders!
