The traditional foundation for Lenten practice rests on three supports: prayer, fasting, almsgiving. To assist families in the third of these supports, we participate in Lenten Gospel Giving. Each week all members of the parish are asked to bring an item with them to Mass. Each item is chosen to reflect the readings of the day and the gifts will be donated to various needy causes. Weekly reminders will be in the bulletin.
