Schools for Development and Peace

Caritas Canada


When the Bishops of Canada founded Development and Peace, they chose Lent as the moment for our major fundraising campaign each year because of its spiritual significance in the lives of the faithful. It is a time for prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. 

Your Lenten fundraising – dress-down days, toonie drives, THINKfasts, and other creative school initiatives – provide crucial financial support towards our solidarity work in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, as well as our education and action programs here in Ontario. 

This Lent, please join us in creating the Culture of Encounter with our youth – keep reading to discover elementary- and secondary-specific resources for your schools!
