Sow much love… and thanks to give!

To mark the end of the 2015 Share Lent campaign, Sow Much Love... to Give, Development and Peace wishes to underscore the outstanding contribution of everyone who took part in the campaign and whose deep commitment led them to generously give their time, energy and solidarity to helping our sisters and brothers in the Global South.

Parce qu’on sème… on vous remercie du fond du cœur!

Avec la fin de la campagne de Carême de partage, intitulée Parce qu’on sème, on donne, Développement et Paix tient à souligner l’immense contribution de tous ceux et celles qui y ont pris part en investissant leur temps, leur énergie et leur solidarité pour nos sœurs et frères dans les pays du Sud. Nous remercions également toutes les personnes donatrices qui ont choisi de soutenir directement les communautés en Afrique, en Amérique latine, en Asie et au Moyen-Orient qui luttent pour la dignité et la justice.

Solidarity visitor from Brazil: Having faith means taking action

If Bishop Eugenio Rixen has one message that he hopes to share with Canadians during his solidarity visit to Canada, it’s that faith and action are not contrary to one another, but rather go hand in hand. Bishop Rixen is currently touring Alberta and Manitoba as part of Development and Peace’s Share Lent campaign Sow Much Love… To Give.
