Coins for Life Boxes
We thank you for your generosity on behalf of God’s preborn children. Your contribution will help save countless innocent lives now and in the future and help the sanctity of life movement continue its work in supporting the National March for Life, 40Days for Life, Life-Chain and all the pro-life work we do with you. We will not stop until the day we have a law to protect God’s children in the womb but we do need your help to achieve this. For information on how you can become involved please call Maria at (416) 204-9749 or email email@example.com .
Thanks to your generosity,we raised an additional $8211.00 last weekend towards our parish goal of $30 000!!
Men who have responded to God’s call to dedicate their lives to His service come from all walks of life. Those who enter the priesthood come from different ages and backgrounds, economic situations, skill sets, and ethnic communities. At ShareLife-funded agencies such as Serra House, Redemptoris Mater, and St. Augustine’s Seminary, they undergo extensive theological education and practical field training. Through ShareLife, you are helping sustain the vocations for priesthood and inspire discernment for God’s call. Last year ShareLife helped support over 70 priests and seminarians in their formation studies.
Next ShareLife Sunday – June 1, 2014. Please give generously. You can work wonders!

Jars full of Gratitude!
To help us continue towards our goal, the month of May will be dedicated to cultivating our sense of gratitude for all the gifts we have through our ShareLife gratitude jars.
We invite you to take a jar home from the back of the church and place it wherever you keep your spare change. Each time you feel gratitude for the gifts in your life, you can share it by putting coins in the jar to Sharelife. Bring the jars back on Sunday June 1st and we will have a special presentation of the jars at mass. Let’s dedicate May to being grateful for all we have and all we share with others!
COFFEE SUNDAY is NEXT WEEK, MAY 18.
Come downstairs after Mass for treats, fresh-brewed fair trade coffee and tea. Fair trade coffee beans, chocolate and now tea will be available for purchase. See you there!
Refresh and rekindle your love for each other by treating yourselves to a marriage enrichment weekend at Queen of Apostles Renewal Centre, or give a weekend as a gift to family or friends. The Centre offers comfort, excellent cuisine and an inspiring program. The next weekend is June 6-8, 2014.
