Justice, Development, & Peace Committee news
Our Parish Justice, Development & Peace Committee would welcome you as a volunteer. Interested? Please contact Indira in the Office.
Cultivating and Caring for Creation: 12 videos with study guides on Catholic thought and action leading up to Pope Francis' encyclical on the environment. Free on-line at www.greenspirittv.com from the Canadian Bishops (CCCB).
Contributions to the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development & Peace (D&P) for regions struck with disasters are always welcome. D&P is the international development agency of choice for Catholics.Though it is often among the first on the scene -- and often has had a presence in the country long before the disaster struck -- D&P stays with the people in need longer, with its primary focus on long-term community-based development, resilience, and reconstruction.
Make out your cheque to "Saint John XXIII Parish," label it with the region for which you intend it (e.g., "Nepal"), and place it in one of the special D&P earmarking envelopes available in the Office, filling in your name (and if applicable, your Parish envelope number). The Parish will issue your tax receipt, thereby saving administrative costs for Development & Peace.
