Living the Gospel by respecting and caring for life at all stages!
We knew there had to be a reason we were not conceiving on our own. We worked with the FertilityCare Toronto doctors and our practitioner for 15 months and I had another surgery shortly thereafter to repair the Fallopian tube. After only two effective cycles, I was pregnant! I was closely monitored through regular blood work the entire pregnancy. At 38 weeks and 3 days, I delivered our healthy and happy baby boy. Words cannot express how grateful we are to the FertilityCare Toronto and the staff for all their assistance. FertilityCare Toronto treats their patients with the greatest amount of respect and care. I have never felt so in control of my fertility as I do today.
Thank you ShareLife and FertilityCare Toronto!

How do you like the DOORS?
During the Year of Mercy, while we had the Holy Door installed in the Church, our Maintenance Staff – John and Nelson undertook the task to refinish all the doors that lead from the vestibule into the Church. These doors are the original doors that were covered up with plywood and the maroon vinyl for many years. We thank them for their hard work to redo these doors for us in addition to all the hard work that John, Nelson and Paolo do to keep our Church clean and well cared for!
Hmmmmm, what should we do next? Pews? Lights?
