Development and Peace – Caritas Canada adds its voice to those mourning the tragic death of Sally O’Neill, our close collaborator and Honduran consultant, killed on April 7, 2019 in a road accident in Guatemala. Sally was former head of Latin American programs for Trocaire, Development and Peace’s Irish sister agency, with whom she worked for 37 years before retiring in 2015.
This fall, we launched the Share the Journey campaign and invited Canadians to walk in solidarity with the 68.5 million forced migrants around the world. Many of you answered the call and our collective actions are adding up!

Peaceful dwelling places
Through the parable of the Prodigal Son, Jesus invites us to reflect on God’s unfailing love for His children. Although the son squandered his inheritance and became destitute, he was greeted with profound compassion after freely deciding to return home. This powerful example of God’s mercy is also a testament to the importance of family and home.
