Solidarity Sunday - Letter from Archbishop LeGatt to Parishes

Dear friends,

The season of Lent calls us to fast, pray, give alms and to reflect on the marginalized - those who are affected by situations of poverty. This Lent, I am encouraging you to once again, continue your support for Development and Peace, that supports over 86 projects and networks in 40 countries, supporting alternative efforts to the political, social and economic systems of poverty in the Global South.
This year, Development and Peace will be focusing on the campaign – Stand for the Land, and the work of our partners for the defence and preservation of territory.
Development and Peace encourages the faithful to give generously on Solidarity Sunday – March 26, 2023. The funds raised will continue to support the grassroots work of our partners.
I also encourage communities to continue throughout the year to share about the campaign, such as bulletin announcements and videos to show the faithful. These resources can be found at Resources – Development and Peace (
