First Sunday of Lent

Announcements from our bulletin of February 18, 2018

Operation Rice Bowl is the official Lenten program of Catholic Relief Services. Each Lent, parishes, school and other faith communities participate in Operation Rice Bowl to learn more about the work of CRS and put their faith into action. As a Lenten solidarity program, Operation Rice Bowl calls Catholics to reach out to assist our brothers and sisters around the world through the traditional Lenten practices of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving while learning about their lives overseas.

This year, join over 15,400 groups in the United States participating in Operation Rice Bowl and foster solidarity between your community and those who struggle with hunger and poverty around the world. Rice Bowls are available at the doors of the Church starting on Ash Wednesday. Please take one and return it on Holy Thursday.

God of compassion, May our prayers, challenge us to love and embrace those who are poor and vulnerable.

May our fasting challenge s us to live simply and be better stewards of Your creation; May our almsgiving challenge us to give generously to those in need.


Lent is a time of austerity and penance. As a result, there will be no flowers inside the Church during Lent.

Please do not bring flowers again until after Easter.
