2022 Catholic Ministries Appeal
“During this season of conversion, let us renew our faith, draw from the “living water” of hope, and receive with open hearts the love of God, who makes us brothers and sisters in Christ.”
– Pope Francis
During the Lenten Season we are asked to pray, fast, and give alms.
Let us pray for those in need – whether it is for their material, emotional or spiritual needs. During our time of fasting and abstinence during these forty days, please remember those of our neighbors who are hungry, and consider sharing your gifts with them.
One way to do this is by making a gift to the Catholic Ministries Appeal, which supports programs that help to feed people in our community each year through Catholic Charities and our Parish Outreach programs. Mr. Patrick Brennan will be speaking at Mass the weekend of April 2-3 about what the Appeal can mean to our parish of St. Francis.
