With the spiritual pillars of Lent at our disposal, we set out on a 40-day journey, a journey of encounter with ourselves, our neighbors and our God.

Through prayer, we encounter Christ, present in the faces of every member of our human family, so often still walking that long road to Calvary.

Through fasting, we encounter our own obstacles, those things about ourselves that prevent us from loving God and neighbor.

Through almsgiving, we encounter our brothers and sisters around the world, asking what we can give up so that others might have life to the fullest.

Please take advantage of any of the following opportunities to help your encounter this season of Lent.


Catholic Relief Services (CRS) Rice Bowl Program

Our community is participating in CRS Rice Bowl, a faith-in-action program that invites us to encounter anew ourselves, our neighbors and our God.  Place your Rice Bowl in a prominent place in your home as a daily reminder of this encounter.  You may find additional information, resources and recipes on the CRS Rice Bowl website.

Rice Bowls will be collected during Holy Week and in the Parish Office during the week of April 17-23.
