CATHOLIC RELIEF SERVICES LENTEN RICE BOWL COLLECTION

When Jesus fed the 5,000, he said, “give them some food yourselves.” Reflect on the challenge of global hunger. How can you contribute to support the hungry in your community.  Visit crsricebowl.org for more information.Rice Bowls are available at the entrances to church.   Rice Bowls will be collected at the Mass of the Last Supper on Thursday of Holy Week.  Put them in the basket by the table in the center aisle.

 THE LIGHT IS ON FOR YOU

This Lenten Season Catholic parishes in our diocese will have confessions available from 6:30-7:30 PM every Wednesday of Lent.  If you have been reluctant to come to the sacrament, have been away for some time or just find it difficult to get to a Saturday afternoon confession time, this is a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with Christ and His Church.
