SANCTUARY LAMP
is lit this week In Memory of Lillian Sukhmangal at the req. of Ann Collins

Reflection – I believe in death
I believe that it is part of life.
I believe that we are born to die,
To die that we may live more fully;
Born to die a little each day
To selfishness, to pretence, and to sin.
I believe that every time we pass from one stage of life to another, something in us dies and something new is born.
I believe we taste death in moments of loneliness, rejection, sorrow,
disappointment, and failure.  I believe
that we are dying before our time.
When we live in bitterness, in hatred,
and in isolation.
I believe that each day we are creating
Our own death by the way we live.
For those with faith, death is not
extinguishing the light; it is putting out the lamp because the dawn has come. 
(Anon.)



Working wonders in our
Community  . . .
“You don’t have to look far to see the wonders being worked by ShareLife . . . in the pews of your parish, in the homes on your street, in your neighbourhood.”  ShareLife agencies provide competent, faith-informed care to those who turn to them for help, regardless of their beliefs or background. 
Last year, nearly 250,000 people in our Archdiocese
were helped in more than 20 languages, receiving
the compassion, care and respect they rightly
deserve.  In addition, countless others were
assisted through outreach programs around
the world.  – Thomas Cardinal Collins,
Archbishop of Toronto

236th Scout Group

Scouts To Use 3 Rs to help them get to Alberta for the Canadian Scout Jamboree

As Part of our scout law : we promise to the Wise use of Resources so adhering to the
3 Rs : Reduce, Reuse and Recycle Is logical and in doing so, we are funding some of
our 7 scouts and 4 adults going to Alberta For the Canadian Jamboree

If you have any old metal, steel, copper, lead, aluminum, pipes etc. including appliances,
pop cans, beer cans and bottles and wine bottles, we will collect them and put them
Back to work.  And where we cannot reuse them, we will recycle.

The funds will be used to finance the air trip for some of the youth.

Email the scouts at bob@236toronto.com or phone 416-465-8639
Thank you very much.
