At Holy Rosary Church we have a group that runs our own internal Development and Peace, working to spread the message of the community and create opportunities for our community to get involved. We have a table at the back of the church that is regularly updated with information, as well as letters uploaded to the website to help keep you informed. For more information on our local mission and ways you can help, please contact Erminio Caligiuri.
Founded in 1967, Development and Peace is the official international development arm of the Catholic Church in Canada. It is a member of Caritas Internationalis, and Halifax Initiative. For over 50 years, Development and Peace has supported 15,200 local initiatives in fields such as agriculture, education, community action as well as the consolidation of peace and advocacy for human rights in 70 countries.
“Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.”
Where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
