The Gift of Easter

Our Toronto winter has been challenging at best, and as Easter approaches, we await, in hope, the first signs of spring.

The great gift of Easter is, of course, hope – hope in new, and eternal, life.

We, at Good Shepherd Ministries, offer a place of hope for those who have lost so much in their lives.

We do this every single day of the year – despite our own preoccupations and worries – because we are, as Pope John Paul II urged us to be – “Easter people”.

Our values of hospitality, compassion, faith and acceptance are underpinned by the hope of Easter. New life surfaces, like a seedling, with a smile, an extended hand, an extra effort. This is nurturing, regenerative, work.

The spring Good Shepherd Journal speaks to your commitment to live out the Easter message each and every day, inspiring hope in all the lives you touch with your donations and your volunteer work. Thank you!

Please know that Brothers David, Tom and John, Fr Ed, Sister Joan and I pray that you experience a special peace and contentment as we celebrate this blessed season of renewal.
