LENT

Lord Jesus,

Let me follow in your ways all my days.

BLACK AND INDIAN MISSION COLLECTION - MARCH 23-24

Today, our parish will take up the 140th annual National Black & Indian Mission Collection.  Our support of this collection helps build the Church in African American, Native American, and Alaska Native communities from coast to coast.  Schools, parish religious education programs, and diocesan ministries depend on your generosity to help them spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ!  Thank you for your support.



PONTIFICAL GOOD FRIDAY COLLECTION - MARCH 29

Pope Francis has asked our parish to support the Pontifical Good Friday Collection, which helps Christians in the Holy Land, where they are now less than 2% of the population.  Your support is essential to help the Church minister the parishes, provide Catholic schools, and offer religious education.  The collection also helps to preserve the sacred shrines of Christianity including in Jerusalem, Nazareth, and Bethlehem, to name only a few.  The pandemic had a hit on Christians in the Holy Land particularly hard.  Most of them depend on pilgrimages for work.  The war made their situation even more dramatic.  In these times of crisis, the Pontifical Good Friday Collection is necessary to meet the basic needs of the People of God still living in the this Land and to maintain the Christian presence where the Church was born.  When you contribute to this collection, you join the Catholics around the world in solidarity with the Church in the Holy Land.  Please be generous.  For more information go to www.myfrancisan.org OR www.custodia.org.
