At this event, guests enjoyed a simple meal with Peter Kimeu, a small-scale farmer from Machakos, Kenya who serves as a technical adviser for Catholic Relief Services. We reflected on how traditional Lenten practices of fasting, prayer, and almsgiving can put us in solidarity with our next-door-neighbors and our neighbors around the world.
Peter Kimeu of Machakos, Kenya has worked with Catholic Relief Services for over 25 years, helping neighbors resolve conflicts peacefully to build healthy, sustainable communities. Click here for a recent New York Times article by Peter Kimeu. Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is the overseas relief and development agency of the U.S. Catholic Church. Its mission is based on the gospel of Jesus Christ and Catholic social teaching that calls us to respond to the needs of the poor and promote justice in the world. CRS works in over 99 countries around the world on the basis of need not creed, race or nationality.
This event was co-sponsored by Campus Ministry and the Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education.comments powered by Disqus
