Solidarity Calendar – Share Lent 2021

This year, join us for an interactive journey through the season of Lent with our solidarity calendar. Each week, we’ll explore a different facet of Development and Peace through activities that include moments of prayer, action and fundraising. We’ll also host several virtual events, where you’ll get to meet some of our partners, members and staff. To receive weekly updates about upcoming events and campaign activities, subscribe to our newsletter.

We can’t wait to bring the Share Love, Share Lent campaign to you!

    A story from Canada

    Emily Lukasik began working as our animator for Central Ontario in late 2020, but her involvement with Development and Peace goes back many years! This cute and silly picture is from 2010, when she participated in our Water for All: Let Justice Flow campaign. Asked why she’s been with us all these years, Emily answers, “I have always felt so incredibly myself when involved with Development and Peace, probably because the organization attracts people who share two of my biggest passions: social justice and faith.”

Want to make a small gesture of solidarity with womankind? Our week's theme is youth engagement. Consider writing to an inspiring young woman in your life!
