for Lent, for Life

Lent is a time of preparation. Spend the next 40 days drawing closer
to God as you prepare for the celebration of Easter.


Pray to deepen your relationship with God and to reflect on what type of
person you are and want to be.

Join us in prayer.

Fast to remove the things that get in the way of your relationship with God.
In hunger, you will be reminded of all the gifts from God and that there are
many who do not have enough to eat.

Enjoy simple, meatless meals.

Give to your brothers and sisters in need. Twenty five (25%) percent of this Rice Bowl collection will remain in the Diocese to fund Catholic Charities and various parish efforts to feed the hungry.  Seventy five (75%) percent will be forwarded to CRS for their work in global food security.
