Tribute Gifts
In Memoriam Giving - A simple yet powerful way you can show others that your Catholic faith is important to you is to request that in lieu of flowers donations made in your memory be directed towards your parish or favourite Archdiocesan charity. Create your In Memoriam intention.

Make an in memoriam gift to remember a friend or loved one. The Archdiocese of Toronto will mail a personalized card to the family of the deceased.

Living Gifts – You can celebrate special moments in life such as a wedding, a birthday, a retirement or the reception of a Sacrament by making a gift to your parish or favourite Archdiocesan charity in the person’s honour. Make a gift to honour a friend or loved one. The Archdiocese of Toronto will mail a personalized card to the person you honour. 

If you are getting married or celebrating an important milestone and would like to make a gift in lieu of wedding favours or have donations in lieu of presents, please contact us at .
