Share Lent Pilgrimage – Working to end inequality in Paraguay


This week our pilgrimage travels to Paraguay where we meet Liz Benetiz. Her country is where 1% of the landowners hold 77% of arable land. Liz’s family are part of a peasant movement supported by Development and Peace who work to gain access to land for the poorest farmers in the country, the campesinos. They have been threatened by the state and police because of their work. “I just want to live peacefully with my family,” she says. This year consider stretching your Share Lent donation across the whole year with our Share Year-Round monthly giving program. To donate, visit or contact your local diocesan council at
