Project Compassion

“Aspire not to have more, but to be more.”
– Saint Oscar Romero

Every year, countless people turn lent into a demonstration of faith, love and generosity. You can be a part of this incredible community, who believe that there are simple actions we can all take to “be more” for our world.

Make a donation to Project Compassion, start a fundraiser with your school, parish or community; give something up for lent… there are many ways to put your compassion into action. Whatever you choose to do, you’ll be contributing towards a more just and compassionate world.
