“In 1967, the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace was launched by the Canadian bishops as a creative new way to assist, and stand in solidarity with the poor and oppressed peoples of the global South. This beautiful coffee table book brings together hundreds of photographs and original articles by different writers to paint a picture of this faith-based justice organization as it turns fifty.

Jubilee – 50 Years of Solidarity tells this story in three chapters that focus on the nation-wide movement for social justice, the partnerships that give power to the excluded and the advocacy campaigns which strive to make governments and corporations accountable to the people they impact.”

In her message, Sister Michelle Payette, MIC, CRC’s President, writes “it was only natural for religious congregations to work closely with Development and Peace since they have always been inspired by a missionary spirit and a thirst for social justice.” Sister Michelle “hopes that our two networks will continue their cooperation to give birth to a world that is fully human, where justice, love and peace prevail.”
