The Annual National Catholic Mission

The theme for the 2014 Annuel National Catholic Mission is “The Gift of Forgiveness”

This year’s Mission reviews past Missions and looks at how the hurts and cruelties we inevitably experience during the first half of our lives, at school, at home and at work, may be a source of the anger and resentment we feel in our later years. It will offer a pathway to help us rediscover a mellow and compassionate heart.

The National Catholic Mission for 2014 will be broadcast on Vision TV on the Monday and Tuesday evenings of  Holy Week, April 14 and 15.

Development and Peace Share Lent Campaign

The Development and Peace Campaign is about to be launched. "This year’s Development and Peace Share Lent campaign is aligning itself with a global initiative of Caritas Internationalis under the theme of “One Human Family, Food for All”, launched by the Holy Father in December."

Archbishop Paul-André Durocher writes: "Our goal is to share the abundance of God’s creation with our brothers and sisters around the world so that we can end the injustice of hunger and make a place at the table for the poor."

A variety of material and tools have been made available on the Development and Peace website: www.devp.org/en/sharelent2014/materials

Follow the national launch of the campaign on March 5th on  Facebook and Twitter @devpaix.
