Working wonders in our livelihoods…
“The services provided by ShareLife agencies are lifesaving and life-restoring to those who regularly rely on them. Families are working through crises and are healing. People with developmental challenges are supported as they experience a sense of self-worth and fulfillment in their daily activities. Seniors are living independently, with access to the care and services they need. Refugees and new Canadians are guided toward a stable, productive livelihood in their newfound home. Sometimes the results are obvious and sometimes they’re invisible but, always, they make a tangible difference.”

—Thomas Cardinal Collins, Archbishop of Toronto

St. Francis Xavier parish will be hosting our annual Lenten Retreat on Saturday, March 14 after the 9am Mass till 12nn. 

Lent is a season of repentance and renewal, Lent is also a wonderful season of grace. We have to keep aware that grace comes from God and it is His desire to bless us.  Keeping this in mind we have an excellent speaker – Chris Mueller from Steubenville, US coming to give us talks at this retreat. Chris is well known for his dynamic talks on communicating the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a way that engages the audience with truth that lasts.

Cost for the retreat is $25.00 includes lunch.  We encourage everyone to attend this wonderful retreat.  Topic is on teaching parents how to evangelize to their children.
