Working wonders for those in our community..
“I searched the internet for ‘help young mother pregnant Mississauga” and I found Vita Centre. I was shocked to find out that there were complete strangers willing to help and guide young mothers to success. Even the resources that I have learned from my counsellor have saved me so much time and hassle, and have given me hope that things will get better, no matter how tough it may feel” shares Alyssa, who is now experiencing a brighter future – thanks to a ShareLife funded agency.
Thank You for Your Generosity to ShareLife!

The Marian Month of May
During the month of May, let us honor Mary: may our devotion to her lead us to love and serve God joyfully. We can let go of grudging, reluctant duty; remembering instead our loving God and Mary our Mother. Then, may there be springtime in our souls and Mary’s own Maytime in our hearts.
From the Vocations Director
What could convince someone to turn to God? The story that God became human? The story that Jesus cured the sick? The story that Jesus forgave sin? The story that Jesus rose from the dead? Or, perhaps the story of the witness of your own life! If you have the continuing inclination that God is calling you to be a priest, religious or deacon, call Fr. Chris Lemieux, Vocations Director, Archdiocese of Toronto 416 968 0997 or email email@example.com .
