This year, in the midst of COVID 19, many of the 40 organizations that depend on Sharelife for funding have been busier than ever caring for those in our community who are the most vulnerable. The need this year is greater than ever.
Normally, the Sharelife campaign takes place every year during the season of Lent. As our churches were closed this past Spring, the campaign did not take place and many did not have an opportunity to give.
As the need this year is greater, now that our churches our open again, the campaign will be extended to the fall. There will be additional collections this year in support of Sharelife. These will take place on September 12-13, 2020 and October 10-11, 2020 (the Thanksgiving weekend). If need be, an additional collection will also take place on November 7-8, 2020.
This year, St. Peter’s parish goal for Sharelife is $41,000. We have already collected about $12,500.
To those who have already donated this year—thank you very much!
If the challenges of this year make it impossible for you and your family to donate, please keep these organizations in your prayers.
If you are able to give this year, please consider giving generously.
In the event that you do not feel safe giving at church, you may do so by sending your donation to the parish office (659 Markham Street, Toronto, Ontario, M6G 2M1) or through the archdiocesan website’s “Donate Now” portal at: www. archtoronto.org .
Thank you for your support of Sharelife—through it our community helps to live the Gospel in our local Church.
