For more than 50 years, Development and Peace - Caritas Canada has been bringing people together and building bridges for peace by supporting local organizations in the Global South that promote dialogue, openness, and mutual understanding.
This year, for Share Lent, discover the extraordinary accomplishments of Development and Peace partners working for peace in Cambodia, Lebanon, Nigeria, and Peru.
We invite you to join them so we can act Together for Peace!
This Lent, you can transform lives!
Thanks to your support, vulnerable communities are using dialogue as an instrument for building peace and creating a just world.
If you're looking for inspiration during Lent, we have many resources for making the most of your Lenten journey over the next 40 days.
What will you do this Lenten season?
Whether you want to pray, take on a new challenge or bring together your community, we have some ideas for you. And remember, every action counts!
"Dialogue is first and foremost a way of liberating oneself from mistrust and fear of the other, of purifying memories and overcoming prejudice, of human solidarity - and why not - of spiritual communion."
— Fadi Daou, President of the Adyan Foundation, a Development and Peace partner in Lebanon.
Thanks to your solidarity,
peace on Earth is possible!
