We are entering the final weeks of the 2016 ShareLife campaign. While we are tracking well, there is still a way to go to meet our $12.950 million parish campaign goal. If you have not supported the campaign as of yet, please consider doing so!
This month we would like to share the story of Terry, who has been helped by the program at St. Michael’s Homes, which reaches out to men who suffer from substance abuse. His story is one of the many examples that show how ShareLife funding is helping to bring the hands of Christ to those in need.
Terry obtained his Master’s Degree in music and philosophy earlier in life and was successful in his career in the hospitality industry. Unfortunately, while working in hospitality, he became addicted to alcohol. Recognizing the seriousness of his problem and in order to return to work successfully, he decided to become involved in a long term recovery program. Terry chose the spiritually enriched program St. Michael’s Homes offered. As a result, he became focused and deeply connected with the staff at St. Michael’s and was able to continue on the right path.
Terry looks forward to the day soon when he can confidently leave and be successful again in the hospitality industry, and be an inspiration to those around him. ShareLife-funded agencies like St. Michael’s homes help over 300 men annually suffering from substance abuse get their lives back on track through life-changing counselling and extensive support.
Please help make a difference in the lives of people like Terry by being generous toward ShareLife. Your donation toward the work of the forty-two agencies supported by ShareLife makes a real difference – click here to make a donation.
