During these challenging times, as we focus on our new pastoral plan "Walking with Christ", we encourage all students, staff and their families to consider supporting the many local Catholic charities that are funded through ShareLife.
These Catholic agencies help families, single parents, the elderly, individuals with special needs, immigrants and refugees, the homeless and the needy, as well as the education of clergy within our own City of Toronto.
They truly affirm that all of us, regardless of our circumstances, journey and support each other, walking with Christ with eyes of hope and faith.

We thank employees in the Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) community for all that they do throughout the year to help others — giving of their time and their resources to make a difference.
You can learn more about the ShareLife School Employee Campaign by visiting the ShareLife website.
Many thanks to all those who have taken part in the TCDSB’s ShareLife Employee Campaign to date.
If you haven’t had an opportunity to do so, we invite you to consider participating in this year’s TCDSB's ShareLife Employee Campaign.
Each contribution shows our willingness to help a neighbour in need through a practical act of love, an example of walking with Christ together.
ShareLife Week falls within the Lenten season and runs from April 4-8 and is an opportunity for us “to live the Gospel by providing for those in need”.
TCDSB ShareLife Wear Green Day takes place on Friday, April 8, 2022. We encourage all students and staff to participate by donating a toonie (or whatever can be afforded) in support of the campaign!
If the April 8 does not work for your school community, your ShareLife Civvies Day can be held any day during ShareLife Week.
Please consider wearing green to support ShareLife and post your photos on social media using the hashtag #ShareLifeTCDSB.
Let us enable these Catholic agencies to continue their good work through fundraising. Now, more than ever, during this pandemic, the needs are so great.
Please see the following resources to help in your efforts:
Explore videos on the Wonderworkers curriculum site to witness the powerful stories of people being raised up and supported in justice and love by agencies funded through the ShareLife campaign. Powerful stories are also included in the school newsletters below.
We thank everyone in the Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) community for all they are doing to help others. We applaud those efforts, and take great pride in the commitment to living our Catholic values and putting faith into action.
Each Advent, ShareLife invites you to support those in need who are served by ShareLife agencies. School communities are encouraged to consider an Advent Toonie Drive for ShareLife.
Please find, in the ShareLife Campaign Tools section further up, several resources to support your efforts:
