Dear Parishes,
The 2024 Share Lent Order form (for materials) is up and must be completed by December 6th of this year. The theme will be Reaping our Rights. It will focus on the good work our partners do in the field of small-holder agriculture. This is an important area and is key to alleviating poverty and hunger in many areas of the world. Anyone can make this order on behalf of a parish. Often times, it’s the D&P parish rep, parish secretary or parish priest/deacon who puts in the order.
In general, regarding numbers: my recommendation is 200 copies for a very large parish, 100 for a middle size parish and 30 for a very small parish.
If you have any questions you can contact head office:
Phone – Toll free: 1 888 234–8533, ext. 600
Phone – Montreal: 514 257-8710, ext. 600
You can also phone me any time! I would be glad to help out. You can contact me through the methods below.
In solidarity,
Michael LeBlanc

Development and Peace ― Caritas Canada is raising funds for the Palestinian people besieged in the southern Gaza Strip, who are in urgent need of help.
Facing a near-total blockade and ongoing bombardment, our partner Caritas Jerusalem urgently needs help to provide food, water, shelter, hygiene kits, healthcare and psychosocial support to the wounded, the displaced and the bereaved.
So, as you join Pope Francis in praying that “weapons be silenced” and that “the cry for peace” is heeded, we invite you to give generously to help our sisters and brothers in Gaza.
To give, visit and click on the banner on the main page. Click here to donate directly or click here to learn more. 

Grow Hope Saskatchewan - There are 828 million people in our world who go hungry each day. As Catholics, we can act in solidarity through our local and faith-based fundraiser, Grow Hope Saskatchewan. Local SK farmers with your financial support grow crops for sale and give proceeds to those in need. It costs $350 to grow an acre of food. Funds raised through the sale of the crop fight hunger through emergency food relief, support for young mothers, and local agricultural projects. Donations of any amount are welcome. Write cheques to Development and Peace, 1425 René-Lévesque Blvd West, 3rd Floor, Montreal QC, H3G 1T7 – please write in the Memo: “Grow Hope SK.” To donate online or for more information, go to (Note: D&P is the Catholic agency). Questions? Contact Myron Rogal (306) 659-5841 or Mike LeBlanc (306) 205-2334.
