As we begin 2017 and celebrate our 41st anniversary, we are encouraged to “Live the Gospel” values by providing for those in need. Supporting ShareLife reinforces the message of the Gospel to the marginalized as we become the hands and feet of Christ to others. We are called to respond generously with justice and love to people with special needs, the elderly, children and youth, education of our priests and deacons, or international needs, people right here in our archdiocese, and around the world. 

Last month, we spoke about our new Mission statement – to Live the Gospel by providing for those in need. This month I would like to introduce our new Vision statement. A vision is the ideal situation for an organization, a declaration of our objectives, and is clear, concise and future oriented.

Our new vision for ShareLife is: 

The Catholic community and its partners responding generously with justice and love.

Our ultimate goal is that all Catholics in the Archdiocese of Toronto contribute to the work of ShareLife funded agencies through our annual appeal. If each Catholic in the archdiocese were to make a contribution to ShareLife, we would achieve our campaign goal and be able to provide more funds to our agencies. When we speak of our partners, were are fortunate to have support from a  number of companies including the five major chartered banks, who support the work that are social service agencies to do serve the entire community, regardless of religious affiliation. We also receive contributions from a number of individuals who are not Catholic but again are supportive of the work of our social service agencies.

As our Planning Committee discussed our new vision statement, one of the points that came up was the definition of ‘responding generously.’ It was felt that this is ultimately up to the individual, to support the ShareLife campaign to the best of their ability, recognizing the needs and the important work that our agencies do to serve those who come to them for help.

In a few short weeks, we’ll begin the public phase of our 2017 ShareLife parish campaign, with a goal of achieving $13.1 million on behalf our agencies. As you review our materials and the case for support that our agencies provide – the ‘why’ as to contribute – please take a moment to reflect on your ability to support the campaign, and then make a decision to support ShareLife this year. To make a donation today, click here.

By contributing to ShareLife, we are living the Gospel value to Love one another as I have loved you. On behalf of our agencies and those we serve, thank you for your generosity!
