Categories: General Date: Nov 19, 2019 Title: World Day of the Poor
On Sunday, November 17, Roman Catholics observed the third annual World Day of the Poor, instituted by Pope Francis in June, 2017, and observed annually on the 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time. The theme this year is “The hope of the poor shall not perish forever (Ps 9:19).The CCCB released a document in October in anticipation of this World Day of the Poor, entitled “Poverty in Canada: Ensuring Safe, Secure and Affordable Housing”. The celebration of this day is an excellent opportunity for us to support our local St. Vincent de Paul and/or local Food Bank.
