First Sunday of Lent

This Weeks Readings: Genesis 9.8-15; Psalm 25; 1 Peter 3.18-22; Mark 1.12-15.

God sets a covenant with his chosen people and constantly renews it. He promises. “I will be your God, and you will be my people.” We are so often tempted to diverge from our promises, but the Lord always keeps his, takes us back, renews our strength, and saves us by his own life. In the wilderness places of our lives, let us keep our focus on the one who is our rock and salvation, who leads the humble in what is right and teaches the humble his way.

Next Week's Readings: Genesis 22.1-2, 9-13, 15-18; Psalm 116; Romans 8.31b-35, 37; Mark 9.2-10.

Sign up here for the 2018 Call for Conscience Campaign

Cardinal Collins and bishops across Ontario are asking for an email address from every Catholic family in their community, with a goal of 100,000 email addresses collected by the end of February 2018. This information will be used locally by Cardinal Collins and trusted faith partners to communicate periodically (approximately 6-8 times each year) on issues of particular importance for the Catholic community.

The first campaign of 2018 is the Call for Conscience, inviting our elected Members of Provincial Parliament (MPPs) and those seeking office this June to increase funding/access to palliative care, to protect health care workers wishing to abstain from any involvement in euthanasia/assisted suicide and to protect faith-based facilities from participation in euthanasia/assisted suicide. The work builds on a similar campaign in 2017.

2018 ShareLife Campaign

by supporting
ShareLife agencies

“As we begin our ShareLife campaign, we are encouraged to Live the Gospel in all that we do.  How do we demonstrate that in our community? Living the Gospel may mean helping single mothers to care for their newborn children, or being available to families facing difficulties, or welcoming refugee families to our community. For more that 41 years, countless individuals have experienced this compassionate care offered by our agencies. Please support our annual archdiocesan appeal during this Lenten season!”    

         —Thomas Cardinal Collins, Archbishop of Toronto

March 18th is ShareLife Sunday.

Please give generously.
