Parish communities throughout the Archdiocese of Toronto participate in this annual campaign, which starts at the beginning of Lent.
UPDATE: The ShareLife Sunday collections are scheduled for the weekends of September 12/13 and October 10/11, 2020. You can also give to your parish’s ShareLife campaign securely online.
ShareLife is more than a parish collection. It is how we, as a Catholic community in the Archdiocese of Toronto, bring the hands of Christ to those in need.
Over 40 ShareLife agencies serve tens of thousands of people locally and countless more around the world, regardless of religious affiliation. Given the growing needs in our communities, it is crucial we meet our 2020 Parish Campaign goal of $13.8 million. By reaching this goal, our agencies will continue to:
• offer walk-in counselling to those facing mental health issues
• help victims of domestic violence
• ensure isolated seniors are not forgotten
• deliver food to children in developing countries
• form priests and deacons who will minister in our parishes
Your support of ShareLife makes these programs possible, among many others. Thank you for living the Gospel by providing for those in need.

ShareLife Sunday: Last weekend to contribute to our Parish Campaign
People with addictions are among the many marginalized groups supported by your gift to ShareLife.
“These uncertain times are especially difficult for our addiction clients who already face isolation, food and housing insecurities, and struggle with mental wellness,” reports St. Michael’s Homes, a ShareLife-funded agency. “We suspect the need will continue to increase throughout the pandemic and into a post-Covid environment.”
Your gift to ShareLife ensures St. Michael’s Homes can continue to help people overcome addiction, as demand for their programs grows.
This weekend is ShareLife Sunday and the final day to make your donation to our parish campaign. If you give by the end of the weekend, you can double the impact of your donation. A generous donor is matching gifts up to $500,000. Please give during the special collection or anytime using the ShareLife envelopes in the pews. You can also give securely online at sharelife.org/donate.
