On April 7, 2020 from 8:15 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Celtic Grade 10's will take part in an extended one-day Share Lent Amazon awareness retreat and supporting fundraising walk. The program is facilitated by a Grade 10 leadership team and the theme is: Rooting for a Just World. During the day's reflection activities, "On Fire We Will Walk" for one hour to support the Amazon crisis. The fundraising goal is $50 per student and $5000 for the grade as a whole. This effort complements St. Pat's overall Share Lent 2020 campaign.
Through the Catholic organization, Development and Peace, and supported by Global Affairs Canada, we are walking particularly in solidarity with two Brazilian communities whose lands and ways of life are threatened by mining, illegal logging, ranching and industrial agriculture. The Share Lent appeal recognizes that this solidarity alone is not enough. The larger cause is building a world of justice and peace in Amazonia and beyond. It means helping the voiceless and the oppressed rise and defend their dignity. The funds raised will directly support those most in need in the most affected Amazon regions.
