2021 ShareLife Campaign

To fund the necessary work of the charities ShareLife supports, our archdiocesan goal for this year’s campaign is to raise $13.8 million. ShareLife is more than a parish collection. It is how we, as a Catholic community bring the hands of Christ to those in need. Over 40 ShareLife agencies serve tens of thousands of people locally and countless more around the world, regardless of religious affiliation. Given the growing needs in our communities, it is crucial we meet our 2021 goal.  By reaching this goal, our agencies will be able to continue to:

  • Offer walk-in counselling to those facing mental health issues
  • Help victims of domestic violence
  • Ensure isolated seniors are not forgotten
  • Deliver food to children in developing countries
  • Form priests and deacons who will minister in our parishes

“Our goal can be met, but only with your help. I invite you to join today's generation of heroes by making a sacrificial gift to ShareLife. As you contemplate the blessings God has entrusted to you, please join me in giving to ShareLife to the best of your ability.”– Cardinal Thomas Collins 

To help do our part, our parish fundraising goal is $425,000. Please reflect upon your ability to contribute to our parish campaign this year. The pandemic has placed many of the agencies funded by ShareLife under great stress as they continue to support the needs of clients. The need is great.

Ways to Give

We encourage you to consider monthly giving as a convenient way to spread your contribution out over the year. This can be done through preauthorized giving from your bank account (PAG) or Credit Card.

If you would like to give through your parish envelopes,  you are welcome to give whenever is convenient for you; we accept donations to ShareLife all year. You can drop off your envelope through the secure mail slot at the parish office.

You can now contribute via credit card at OLS by e-mailing the office. To donate online, through the archdiocese, you may go to for both monthly and one-time credit card donations. 

However you give, whatever you give, please give generously this year.
