Cardinal Collins reminds us that, and I quote:
“Our faith community has always responded heroically to the needs around us, particularly through our enthusiastic support of ShareLife. We can help alleviate the suffering of those whose lives have been upended by the pandemic. Let us say yes to Jesus’ call to live the Gospel by providing for those in need.” End of quote.
Thank you for your generosity
Donations to help Ukrainians who are suffering due to this war would be most appreciated.
The Archdiocese of Toronto will channel donations to support the Office for Refugees, Archdiocese of Toronto (ORAT) and the Catholic Near East Welfare Association (CNEWA). CNEWA is a papal agency with a long history of humanitarian relief; it is currently working in Eastern Europe, providing Ukrainians with food, shelter, medicine and transportation to safe locations. ORAT is Canada’s largest private Sponsorship Agreement Holder, which helps bring hundreds of newcomers to our country each year; it will use donations to bring Ukrainian refugees to Canada as soon as possible.
Your donation will help Ukrainians who are beset by violence in Eastern Europe and it will help some of them find a new home in Canada.
Those wishing to help may do so in the following ways:
There is no Friday 7:00 pm Mass
The Vatican is the centre of authority over the Roman Catholic Church ruled by the Pope. It is located in Vatican City, Rome.
Within the Archdiocese of Toronto, you will find a family of faith that is alive and at work in our community.
