Bishop Richard Grecco has set aside November 15 for a special collection for Development and Peace.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted us in many ways here in Canada. In the Global South, the impacts are devastating, as the pandemic is worsening poverty, hunger, conflict and gender inequality. More than ever, your solidarity and generosity are needed to support the work of Development and Peace so we are all recovering together. Our partners are working for a just recovery in their countries so all can live in dignity.
There will be a collection in our parish on November 15, 2020. You can also make a donation online. Your generosity allows Development and Peace to support over 100 projects in 35 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East! To learn more about the Recovering Together campaign
