Development and Peace Events

Join us for D&P’s 2024 AGM!

You are warmly invited to join us for our Development and Peace–Caritas Canada Diocesan Council Annual General Meeting for the Archdiocese of Ottawa-Cornwall.

When: June 1st 9:00AM-12PM
Where: Resurrection of our Lord Parish (1940 Saunderson Dr, Ottawa ON K1G 2C9)

The AGM is a crucial event in the life of our movement, where membership has the opportunity to have their democratic say in our council and the organization as a whole. It is also an excellent opportunity to learn more about the work of Development and Peace in Canada and with our international partners.

This year we will have the unique opportunity to hear from D&P members who have themselves had the chance to engage in development work and to meet with our Bolivian partners Fundación NUNA during the Share Lent campaign.

Note that refreshments will be available during the event, you’re also invited to join us at 8:30AM for coffee beforehand. This event is also accessible as a hybrid event via Zoom, register here.

I hope to see you there!

507 SANDWICH CLUB FUNDING

To continue this wonderful initiative, our 507 Sandwich Club needs funding. Centre 507 has seen an unforeseen rise in their numbers and therefore cannot continue to help fund this parish initiative through their grants from the City of Ottawa. Therefore, we are looking to secure a corporate sponsor to help purchase the groceries to enable us to continue making sandwiches in 2024 and beyond. Many thanks to our parishioners who continue to donate to help feed our neighbours. For more information, please email cmpsandwich507@gmail.com.

– Canned soup, chili, or stew, tuna

Personal care items like toothpaste, shampoo and razors would also be appreciated. Please leave your donations in the crates in the church foyer. Thank you for thinking of those in need.
