Holy Rosary Church support the work done through Development and Peace (D&P).
Development and Peace — Caritas Canada, the official development organization of the Canadian Catholic Church, is inspired by the values of the Gospel, particularly the preferential option for the poor.
During the fall of each year, we promote the annual theme presented by D&P. This helps parishioners reflect on the work being done and work that is ongoing. On the Fifth Sunday of Lent we encourage parishioners to donate to D&P for their annual appeal.
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.

But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
“Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.”
Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!
Where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
