Sept. 22: Development and Peace Fall Campaign responds to Pope Francis' call amid COVID-19

A new national campaign launched by the Canadian Catholic Church’s international development and aid organization Development and Peace began on Sept. 12 to face what the organization calls this “critical moment.”

The campaign, called “Recovering Together”, is an effort to put Pope Francis’ call to put people and the environment at the forefront of efforts to address the immediate global impact of the ongoing COVID-19 health pandemic.

“We’ve been very inspired by Pope Francis’ cathechesis series on COVID-19 and the need for a global response that is based on solidarity and the preferential option for the poor,” Di Domenico said.

We will be having a Kickoff for 40 Days for Life on Wednesday, September 23/20 from 7 pm - 8 pm at Helen Nolan Park (corner of 124 St. and 108 Ave. in Edmonton). This will be a chance to support one another as we start another campaign. Pastor Steve Kim will be giving a talk on pro-life apologetics (defending the pro-life position). There will be an opportunity to learn more about 40 Days for Life. We will have handouts that will contain all the details about the campaign. There will be an opportunity to sign up for an hour or more of prayer.

We hope you will be able to attend! Please let us before the event if you will be able to attend. We need to keep the number of people to under 50, as we don't have permission to have more. Let us know by either email ( or phone (780-425-1637). Hope to see you there!
