Working wonders for our new arrivals in Canada…
Within one year of arriving in Canada, large numbers of immigrants who had no prior mental health problems experience mental health challenges that often impede their ability to settle in Canada. In addition, there are few culturally and linguistically appropriate mental health services. Last year, ShareLife agencies helped to meet this challenge by providing advocacy programs for more than 40,000 immigrants and refugees in the GTA.
Thank you for your generosity.
Thank you for your generosity. You can work wonders!
A Word of Thanks
Dear Eucharistic Ministers and Lectors. We are most grateful for the fact that most of you arrive 15 minutes or so prior to the start of Mass. (We would encourage ALL Eucharistic Ministers & Lectors to do the same). This enables the Mass to start on time, it gives the Celebrant an opportunity to both know you are present and to inform you of any possible changes that day. It helps us to know if any last minute replacements are necessary and conversely, not to replace people who arrive at the last minute.
