We are blessed in so many ways; let us make our self sacrifice this Lent a blessing to others. This year the funds from our Rice Bowls will be divided two ways-one half to Catholic Relief Services to assist people of the world suffering from life threatening poverty, war, and disasters; and one half to our local SVDP.
I ask that each family take a Rice Bowl and decide how each family member will by prayer and self sacrifice touch the lives of our brothers and sisters who cry out to God in their suffering. Once Masses resume, there will be baskets on the steps of the sanctuary. When you arrive for Mass, please present to Christ your offering for those in need.
