ShareLife 2018: Living the Gospel by maximizing the impact of your donation…

Administered by St. Elizabeth HealthCare, the Shared Services Initiative is supporting other ShareLife-funded agencies in the areas of human resources, financial services and information technology. Participating agencies report that they are able to improve the quality, competency and accuracy of their work. Through this initiative, ShareLife-funded agencies are ensuring the maximum amount received is directed to the front-line service they provide.

This weekend, we welcome Arthur Peters, Executive Director of ShareLife to speak to us about the ways in which your donation this year will have great impact on each of the 34 agencies assisted by ShareLife.

Thank you for your contributions to this year’s campaign- we have collected $127,780 toward our parish goal of $227,000. Next Sunday, May 27, is ShareLife Sunday. Please give generously.

“Hope for Haiti” Appeal…

Our parishioners have made generous financial contributions of over $20,000 to purchase and transport a shipping container to Jacmel, Haiti this June to help our poor brothers and sisters in need.

Together with the Grade 7 students in our 3 parish schools, we ask you, your family, and your friends to help us fill the shipping container with items that are most needed in Haiti. These items include new school supplies, new sports equipment (soccer balls, basketballs, etc.), new toiletries (soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, etc.), new baby items (bottles, soothers, toys, diapers, etc.) and new flashlights with batteries.

Kindly bring your donations to the church by Sunday, May 27, 2018. There is a donation box outside the parish office. Once again, we thank you very much for your support!
