Encounter – Share the Journey
This year, our family of parishes – through the wonderful work of Catholic Relief Services (CRS) – will encounter people from all over the world who are doing their best, despite overwhelming odds, to not only survive but thrive. Over the next 40 days, we will encounter people from Iraq, Nicaragua, Burkina Faso, Haiti and Malawi; with their stories we will pray, fast and collect alms; we will reflect and be transformed; and we will grow as a family of parishes and an international community in our faith and commitment to justice and compassion.
Please keep an eye on the bulletin, our parish websites, emails and our Facebook pages to find out about all of the great activities that will occur throughout Lent. There are many, many ways to learn, pray, engage and encounter, and it will most certainly be a beautiful journey.
