Description

Family at the Heart of Service

A gathering of families in the Archdiocese of Toronto with Cardinal Thomas Collins

“Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received.” - 1 Peter 4:10

We invite you and your family to celebrate your gifts and grow in the faith through service! Our family-friendly day will include inspirational talks from Cardinal Collins and families, prayer, praise and worship, and hands-on service activities. Be inspired and equipped to live out the faith at home and in the community!

In the afternoon, each family will have the opportunity to participate in one (1) family service activity together. When you click the link to REGISTER, you will be asked to choose your top three (3) service activity choices from the options below:

Service activities will be assigned on a first-come first-served basis. We will do our best to accommodate your preferences but also request your flexibility.

One registration is required per family. Grandparents, parents and children of all ages from the Archdiocese of Toronto are welcome!

Registration will be open until November 11, 2018 or when we have reached the maximum number of registrations. Please register early as spaces are limited.

This event is being hosted by the Office of Formation for Discipleship at the Archdiocese of Toronto, in collaboration with BLD Toronto, Couples for Christ, Faith Connections, Focolare and Teams of Our Lady
