Bloor at KeeleChoosing Life from Coast to Coast
Life Chain is a non-confrontational, peaceful, and silent witness to the evil of abortion and its painful consequences. It is a simple but powerful reminder to our fellow citizens of the sanctity of human life and our duty to defend the weakest members of our society.

Collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada: September 27-28, 2014
Why is there such a collection?
Every year, the Bishops of Canada make an appeal for financial assistance to support its work through the Collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada. As noted by the President of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB), the Most Reverend Richard Smith, Archbishop of Edmonton, this collection helps support the work of the Episcopal conference by providing each diocese the means to make its annual per capita contribution to the CCCB. “Any amount exceeding this contribution is then put at the disposal of the dioceses for their own pastoral needs,” Archbishop Smith explains. The CCCB is the national assembly of Catholic Bishops in Canada, including the Eastern Catholic Churches in Canada.
The Collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada will be held in our parish on September 27 and 28, 2014. Through your contribution to the collection, you too can collaborate with the Bishops in their ministry to teach, sanctify and govern.
