Update on Development and Peace
With the help of the Canadian bishops’ conference, the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace (CCODP) is now addressing serious problems that have been identified with some of its partner organizations involving activities contrary to Catholic moral teaching. A letter outlining this review process is available on the diocesan website.
In the light of this progress, the western dioceses have agreed to forward the proceeds of the Share Lent collection for 2018 with the stipulation that no funds be given to any of the compromised partners in developing countries.
