RICE BOWL: LENTEN  ALMS CHANGE LIVES

Each Lent, Catholic families across the country unite to put their faith into action through prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Through CRS Rice Bowl, families learn about how our sisters and brothers across the globe overcome hardships like hunger and malnutrition, and how through Lenten alms, we have the power to make the world a better place for all. The RICE BOWL box are available in the vestibule of the Church. We ask you to consider parcitipating. Please return them by Good Friday, April 2, 2021.

 

 

"Our Live Stream Mass throughout the month of February is made possible through the generosity of the  Henry, Durald, Handy & Payne families."
