Development and Peace
For nearly 50 years, Development and Peace has been committed to nurturing the bond between the faith of Canadian Catholics and the poorest of our brothers and sisters in the human family. Since our founding in 1967, Canadian Catholics have supported 15,200 local initiatives around the world through generous donations to the annual "Share Lent" campaign. These initiatives, in areas such as agriculture, education, community action, peacebuilding, and citizen participation, continue to help the poor today: Learn more at devp.org.
St. Thomas More parishioners have helped to keep the beacon of D&P alive for the Share Lent campaigns.
"We have to state, without mincing words, that there is an inseparable bond between our faith and the poor. May we never abandon them. -- Pope Francis, "The Joy of the Gospel", 48.
