Transcript of SHARELIFE

What is Sharelife?
ShareLife is an annual charitable event of the Archdiocese of Toronto, which raises money to fund and support over 40 Catholic agencies. Sharelife provides over 354,000 services to nearly 100,000 people. ShareLife will donate all of it's proceeds to people in need and support, potentially saving lives and giving hope along the way.
Who founded ShareLife?
ShareLife was founded by Archbishop Philip Pocock in 1976. The Archbishop bacame an ordained Priest in 1930 and became a professor at St. Peter's Seminary in London, Ontario teaching Moral Theology and Canon Law. In later years, he became Coadjutor Archibishop of Toronto and succeeded as Archbishop of Toronto in 1971. During this time he established several institutions and charities, one of them being ShareLife.
Why was ShareLife created?
ShareLife was created to ensure that people would have access to social services based on Catholic and Religious values and the respect for the sanctity of life at all stages. This organization seerves the needy and the sick have have continued to do so for over 150 years.
Issues addressed
This organization addresses issues in our community which we all know about but hardly do anything about it. This organization gives assistance to those that are in times of need and helps them get back onto their feet. For example, roughly 55,000 immigrants and refugees decide to sttle in the GTA every year. ShareLife agencies assist and help them transition them into their new home, provide counselling, and help in any way possible.
You can go ahead and donate to this cause through their website at www.sharelife.org
Give it a shot, it just may save someones life.
Christian responsibilities
ShareLife's corporate and Patron campaign funds 32 social service agencies whcih provide services with an "open door" policy serving all who seek help regardless of religious affiliation or belief. We as Christian's should work together to provide assistance to those in need whether they're of the Christian faith or not. This is to ensure that the Catholic community fulfills its mission of providing care and outreach to those most in need.
Cathechism of the Catholic Church
Proverbs 22:9
"He who is generous will be blessed, For he gives some of his food to the poor"
1 John 3:17
"But whoever has the world's goods, and beholds his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide him?"
Both of these quotes both support the cause of ShareLife. By Helping others in need we are able to follow in Jesus' steps, and we are also able to follow the what the Bible tells us to do and give when we are able to give.
An individual can become involved and an important and influential member of this organization by donating through their website at www.sharelife.org. On the website you are able donate to to the ShareLife Parish Campaign either a one-time donation or a monthly gift. You are also able to send a Memoriam Gift which allows you to offer your sympathy to those who have lost a loved one, and you may also send a 'Living Gift' which allows you the oppurtunity to honour someone by making a donation to ShareLife in someone elses name.
School Involvement
This movement is not addressed at our school, although it could be. We can start a donation jar or tips that will be collected in the cafeteria beside the cash registers. Students will be able to donate whenever they please. This jar will be put up at the beginning of the year and will be collected and counted up and all proceeds will go to the ShareLife Parish Campaign

170: We do not believe in formulas, but in those realities they express, which faith allows us to touch. "The believer's act [of faith] does not terminate in the propositions, but in the realities [which they express]."56 All the same, we do approach these realities with the help of formulations of the faith which permit us to express the faith and to hand it on, to celebrate it in community, to assimilate and live on it more and more.
