April 14, 2019 Palm Sunday
Pope Francis’ Prayer Intention for April 2019:
Doctors and their Collaborators in War Zones
For doctors and their humanitarian collaborators in war zones, who risk their lives to save the lives of others.
Living the Gospel by supporting vocations
Martin Dicuangco had a life-changing encounter when he visited Serra House, a residence run by St. Augustine’s Seminary for those discerning a priestly vocation. He is now a third-year theology student at St. Augustine’s. “I thank ShareLife for supporting St. Augustine’s Seminary,” says Martin, “where young men like myself, after experiencing the love of Christ, are joyfully preparing for ordination to the priesthood.”
May 5 is ShareLife Sunday. Please give generously.
A Message from Fr. Morgan
As Canada celebrates National Volunteer Week this week, please join me in expressing profound thanks to all the St. Basil’s volunteers, who share so generously their gifts of time and talent to strengthen this faith community and help bring the love and compassion of Jesus Christ to others.
