“Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.”  Matthew 5:7

In this, the year of Mercy, our parishioners and the corporate community were asked to extend their love for neighbour through their support of the 2016 ShareLife campaign.  We are grateful for the continued generosity shown toward ShareLife, as we raised $12.060 million from our parishes toward the work of our agencies. Overall, our parish, school, employee, and corporate campaigns raised $13.345 million, which, although $600,000 less than the previous year, is still a strong result for ShareLife – thank you for this!

There are many stories that demonstrate how our support is making an impact.  Our effort have helped people like Nancy, who several years ago became pregnant at 15 and had to drop out of school with no future plans. She had heard about the Rose of Sharon, a ShareLife supported agency,  from a friend, and she summoned the courage to make the call in the hopes of getting emotional support, financial assistance and education resources. Today, through the support of programs at the Rose of Sharon, Nancy is a confident happy young mother of two little boys, ages 9 and 5, and in a healthy and loving relationship with a supportive partner. Thinking back on everything she has been through since she first found out she was pregnant, Nancy says with a smile on her face, “I just always knew ShareLife and Rose of Sharon were there for me.”

We are so grateful for the support of our parish communities, our clergy, and the many schools and friends in the corporate sector that continued to make ShareLife part of their charitable giving this year.  We would also like to thank the many agency volunteers and staff who gave of their time to speak in parishes on weekends throughout the campaign – your efforts are very much appreciated!

Over the past few months, we have undertaken an extensive planning process for the ShareLife campaign, and we will share our plans with you in the months ahead, including our new mission, vision, and principles that guide our organization. Please follow us on Twitter, Facebook, or refer to our website for more information as we plan for the 2017 campaign!

Our 2016 ShareLife appeal is now completed.  We thank everyone for their continued support of the needs of our agencies.  Together, we are indeed making a difference – together we are working wonders!
