Toronto parish hosts concert for Haiti

February 5, 2010
The efforts to provide medical supplies and rebuild Haiti are well underway, but they still need our support as thousands have been left completely homeless. That is why, for those in Toronto, the youth of the Franciscan church of St. Bonaventure Parish are hosting a concert to raise money for the Haitian people.
This is a very exciting event headlined by Amanda Walther and Sheila Carabine of Dala. They will be joined by a group of alumni from St. Michael’s Choir school and many other gifted local musicians—all from within the parish!
Let us join with St. Bonaventure Parish and all people around the world in prayer for our brothers and sisters in Haiti and also for those who are there to assist with the relief efforts.
The concert is this Sunday, February 7 at 3:00pm. The church is located at 1300 Leslie Street, just south of Lawrence & Leslie (MAP). For admission they are asking for a minimum donation of $15.
