For Lent 2017, Development and Peace – Caritas Canada has chosen to put women at the forefront to highlight the very special importance and role they have in every aspect of development, whether it be social, environmental or economic.
This Lent, act in solidarity with and walk alongside the women and men who advocate for an equal and inclusive society, one in which women can participate hand-in-hand with men in building the world of tomorrow.
Inspired by our Christian faith, we see Share Lent as providing a special occasion to contribute to the work of justice and creation of the God of Life we believe in. The Share Lent campaign starts on Ash Wednesday. On the fifth Sunday of Lent, a collection takes place in all of the parishes across Canada to support the work of Development and Peace. In fact, Share Lent is our main fundraising activity. It enables us to reach thousands of Canadians every year. The Share Lent Campaign continues to be a unique expression of the identity of Development and Peace as the official international development organization of the Catholic Church in Canada.
