Communique #05 – Community Life – Share Lent
National Chairperson of Community Life Marie Rackley, March 5, 2019
Share Lent Campaign 2019
Development and Peace – Caritas Canada
The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (CCCB) review of Development and Peace – Caritas Canada (D&P) practices in relation to choosing its partners is ongoing. Many dioceses have chosen to proceed with the annual Share Lent collection in support of D&P. Before collecting or making donations, members and councils should contact their local diocesan office to confirm if a Share Lent collection is authorized.
When submitting contributions, please specify in the letter that this money is not to be forward to any of the 52 partners under review.
Please note that the national executive of The Catholic Women’s League of Canada suspended the League’s 1% Program, the national voluntary fund that supports D&P, until the audit is completed by the CCCB. No monies are being collected at this time.
