Journey with us this Lent
An invitation to connect more deeply
The three pillars of Lent are prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Here are just some suggestions on how to more deeply connect and prepare ourselves so that we can more fully celebrate the Paschal Mystery with renewed minds and hearts. Praying: pick up your copy of The Little Black Book, available in the back of the Church. Take it anywhere and give yourself 6 minutes a day for mindful meditation. Stations of the Cross will be offered on Fridays at 7:30pm.
Fasting: do what is right for your health and body. The insert found in your CRS Rice bowl offers healthy and low-cost meal ideas.
Almsgiving: We will once again participate in CRS Ricebowl collections & Catholic Charities Lenten Food Drive.
