Lent will start on 6 March. For the Catholic community, it is an important moment of introspection and personal spiritual renewal. In his message for the season, Pope Francis invites us to live as children of God to benefit creation, by cooperating to its redemption. It is also a moment where people can express their solidarity with poor people and communities around the world. Many CIDSE members run national Lenten campaigns during which they offer opportunities to reflect and engage. Below is an overview of their campaigns on human rights issues such as the right to food, access to land and water, peace, migration, women’s rights and youth as actors of social transformation.

With the Lenten period starting, we are called to slow down and take some time to reflect, looking both inwards and at the community around us. In his message for the season, Pope Francis invited people to renew their enthusiasm for their faith and to revive the feelings of charity in their heart. Many of CIDSE’s members are running Lenten campaigns in their countries on hunger, peace, quality of living, transformation, solidarity, and they offer several opportunities to reflect and engage.
