Development and Peace / Caritas Canada – St. Mary’s Parish Committee
The Lenten season is a time to come closer to God through prayer, fasting and almsgiving. As people of faith, we invite others in our parish, our schools, and our community to join us in opening our hearts and to be in solidarity with our sisters and brothers in the the poor nations of the Global South. We call on them to take action together to build a better world.
Here are our activities for Share Lent
