Let’s come together for Solidarity Sunday
This Lenten season, many of you have already come Together for Peace. Thank you! There's still time to donate to our Share Lent campaign. This Sunday, March 18, a special collection dedicated to Development and Peace - Caritas Canada will take place in parishes across the country. Your contribution is essential so that we can continue to walk alongside the most vulnerable communities in the Global South. This Lent, please give generously!
Your generosity makes it possible to transform the lives of women and men in countries across the Global South who fight every day to build a world of peace and justice.
Do you want to raise funds for Development and Peace - Caritas Canada? Share Lent is a wonderful opportunity to organize an event in your community where you can bring people together and collect donations for Development and Peace. Learn more here
Be inspired by young people across Canada, who are doing THINKfasts to raise funds for Development and Peace while learning about the structures that perpetuate poverty and injustice. Learn more here
In his 2018 Lenten message, Pope Francis invites Catholics and all people of good faith to reflect on and to unite in the pursuit of peace:
Perhaps, like ourselves, you are disturbed by the spread of iniquity in the world, you are concerned about the chill that paralyzes hearts and actions, and you see a weakening in our sense of being members of the one human family. Join us, then, in raising our plea to God, in fasting, and in offering whatever you can to our brothers and sisters in need!
Peace is being built today and every day, in every community, village and country, all together and inside each of us. Let us be peacebuilders… Together!
