LETTER FROM THE ARCHBISHOP – Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ
Every year I appeal to you to take part in the Share Lent campaign. Founded and overseen by the bishops of Canada, the Catholic Organization for Development and Peace works on behalf of the poor, the marginalized and those suffering the effects of war, violence and natural disasters throughout the world, including those in Haiti and in Japan.
Around the world, the voice of those deprived of freedom is being heard by their governments. As events in Egypt and elsewhere have recently shown, people yearn for transparency and honesty in public life and want to participate in the political process through fair elections. Many of the projects of our CCODP partners are directed to helping make democratic institutions possible or more effective.
I invite you to be generous in the Share Lent collection taken on “Solidarity Sunday,” the Fifth Sunday of Lent, April 10th. The proceeds assist development and peace-building projects that aim to make lasting improvements in the lives of our brothers and sisters most in need. The Lord will surely reward your Lenten sacrificial offering.
With the assurance of my prayers for you and your families during this holy season of renewal and conversion of heart, I remain Sincerely yours in Christ, J. Michael Miller, CSB
Archbishop of Vancouver
