'No one should be forced to flee their home'

Join us on Saturday, September 22, at Newman Theological College for the Annual General Meeting of the Edmonton Diocesan Council of Development and Peace - Caritas Canada. 

This fall Development and Peace will be joining Caritas Internationalis to #ShareTheJourney. This campaign is Pope Francis' invitation to all peoples to walk in the shoes of migrants and refugees. We will be:

  • Learning about the root causes of forced migration and ways we can take action here in Canada.

  • Discovering our brothers and sisters as they journey - leaving their homes to take refuge within a new space.

  • Sending a strong and united message to the Canadian government that we must do more to prevent forced migrations
