Archdiocesan Day of Prayer for Vocations May 12, 2017

 

The Good Shepherd calls his own sheep by name and leads them. Is He asking you to help others to find Him? Pray for an increase in vocations to the priesthood, diaconate, and religious life, especially for our archdiocese, that God will raise up good shepherds in our midst.

Living the Gospel by providing for those in need…

“One of the core components of our Pastoral Plan is Catholic Outreach in Justice and Love.  As a Catholic community we are called to be the hands and face of Jesus in our communities.  One of the ways that we do this is through our annual ShareLife appeal, which provides resources to agencies serving the poor and marginalized not only in our archdiocese, but also around the world.  ShareLife is a tangible way that we can put the Gospel value to love one another as I have loved you into action, and I invite all parishioners to support the mission work of the Catholic church by making a sacrificial gift to ShareLife.”

—Thomas Cardinal Collins, Archbishop of Toronto.

Today is ShareLife Sunday – May 7, 2017

Thank you for your generosity.
