Preparing for the Season of Lent
This year, our Lenten journey will join together with the tremendous efforts of Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and 40 Days for Life to care for and empower those who are in crisis or experiencing poverty in our community and around the world. We will PRAY for and with our brothers and sisters to end abortion and physician-assisted suicide, FAST with and for those who unjustly go hungry or are suffering, and GIVE Alms through the CRS Rice Bowls. To help us do this, we will take as our theme Honoring God’s Gift of Life and will intentionally pray for particular families and communities helped by CRS at our weekend masses during Lent as well as those questioning the dignity of life in Maryland.
Thank you in advance for your generosity in participating in our local and global Lenten preparation for celebrating the Easter Mysteries.
