We raise funds for the local community throughout the year and use Lent and Easter as a reminder that we belong to a global Catholic/Christian community and need to support the needs of our brothers and sisters in third world countries. Development and Peace is an organization run by the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops. On all of our prayer tables we have jars identified for almsgiving. This is one of the Lenten practices we have adopted for this year. Any extra change you can send in will be greatly appreciated.
