Lent 2019

Lent is our annual opportunity to increase our prayer, fasting and almsgiving.  It is a time to reassess and ask, "Am I close to the Lord as I should be?"  He calls you each day to come closer to Him.  So, we encourage you to take advantage of those many opportunities.

Remember your parish on #GivingTuesday

What is Giving Tuesday?  Entering its seventh year, #GivingTuesday on November 27 is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.  Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
