Share Lent – webinar

Tue, 03/02/2021 - 18:00

Share Lent – Development and Peace online events during Lent 2021: This year, the theme of the Share Lent program is Share Love, Share Lent. Around the world, D & P has four different areas of action: 1. Democracy and citizen participation; 2. Justice for women; 3. Peace and reconciliation; and 4. Ecological justice. As part of this year’s Share Lent campaign, webinars will be presented each week:

Third week of Lent: “Change structures and promote community development through partnership” at 6:00 p.m. CST Tuesday, March 2– Join Emily Lukasik, animator for Central Ontario; Mary Durran, international programs officer; and Jose Mario Lopez, member of the territorial defense team of Development and Peace’s partner, Fundación Eric – Radio Progreso. Find out how this people-led partnership in Honduras is having a positive long-term impact on community development and advocacy in the country, which is one of the poorest and most dangerous for human rights defenders in Latin America. The one-hour webinar will be recorded. Sign up here http://bit.ly/3tDWSgl

Share Lent 2021 – Share Lent has been a tradition in Canadian parishes since 1968. It was established to embody the two pillars of social action—charity and justice— which Pope Benedict XVI described as “not only social, but also spiritual actions, accomplished in the light of the Holy Spirit.”. Each year across Canada, the campaign tells the stories of our brothers and sisters in the Global South: stories of incredible strength, resourcefulness and courage; stories of people working together to change the unjust social, economic and political situations that hinder their integral human development. Development and Peace and its partners can accompany and support them in their quest for justice because of your support for the Share Lent campaign. This year, the campaign theme is Share Love, Share Lent. It is inspired by the message of social fraternity conveyed by Pope Francis in his latest encyclical, Fratelli Tutti. The Share Lent collection is an opportunity to find inspiration from the parable of the Good Samaritan which is at the centre of this encyclical. Participating in Share Lent is a way of doing our part so, as the Holy Father hopes, that “every person lives with dignity and has sufficient opportunities for his or her integral development.” Please give generously: drop your donation in to your parish collection, or give online on Development and Peace’s website at https://www.devp.org/ or call 1-888-234-8533 to donate. Every gift makes a big difference in the world. Thank you for sharing love today.
