Share Love, Share Lent:
(Re)discover Development and Peace

The Share Love, Share Lent campaign is inspired by Pope Francis’s encyclical, Fratelli Tutti and its call “for a love that transcends… geography and distance” and “allows us to acknowledge, appreciate and love each person.”

Each week, the campaign explores a different aspect of Development and Peace’s work and offers you ways to become involved.

This week, the Share Love, Share Lent campaign looks at how your solidarity is meaningful for Rohingya refugees and their host communities in Bangladesh. Please pray for communities affected by crises and help us to keep supporting them by contributing to the collection on the Fifth Sunday of Lent.

Discover more activities and join Catholics across Canada on a journey of love and solidarity throughout the Lenten period. For inspiration, information, to follow our solidarity calendar and to donate, visit

Pillars Trust Fund
February “The Heart of Giving!” month

What do Valentine and Lent have in common? LOVE! Why? Both express love for one another. “Be my Love!” and “God so loved the world that He gave His only Begotten Son” are closer in meaning than we think. We are sharing God’s love for us when we share that love with those who need our help.

Pillars Trust can help you help others. By sharing your love through Pillars, you will be helping Ascension parish to reach out to your shut-in parishioners, young seminarians for the priesthood, social services . As we make our personal sacrifices for Lent perhaps, perhaps we can add a small donation to Pillars Trust that will be used for the benefit of the English Catholic Community. All donations $10 and more are eligible for a tax receipt.
