Lent and Easter 2017

  • Through PRAYER, we encounter Christ, present in the faces of every member of our human family, so often still walking that long road to Calvary.
  • Through FASTING, we encounter our own obstacles, those things about ourselves that prevent us from loving God and neighbor.
  • Through ALMS GIVING,we encounter our brothers and sisters around the world, asking what we can give up so that others might have life to the fullest.
