Development and Peace – Caritas Canada - 50th annual Share Lent campaign

Dorena Hall, JPIC

Development and Peace – Caritas Canada: On Ash Wednesday Development and Peace – Caritas Canada will launch its 50th annual Share Lent campaign, entitled Women at the Heart of Change. You are invited to make Share Lent a part of your Lenten journey. Supporting women is a priority for Development and Peace – Caritas Canada. For this year's campaign, we invite you to listen to the voices of women who are building the world of tomorrow. Women have always been at the heart of our organization. In parishes all across the country many events are being organized to celebrate this 50th anniversary. The most important of course is the Share Lent collection held on April 2, Solidarity Sunday. Since the Organization's founding in 1967, money donated annually by Catholics during Share Lent provides essential support to the poorest people of Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. Today Development and Peace supports 173 partners and 194 projects in 46 countries around the world. Since the Congrégation de Notre-Dame JPIC networks with Development and Peace it would be wonderful if sisters and associates made a special effort to celebrate these 50 remarkable years and at the same time commit ourselves to support the urgent work of JPIC. All of us together walking side by side can build a better world ... a world of justice and of peace. Discover Development and Peace's online resources at www.devp.org/sharelent/resources
