Ash Wednesday Simple Meal
Posted 03/05/2019 12:58PM

Fast...Pray...Almsgiving...Penance

Wednesday, March 6 is the beginning of Lent--time for a spiritual "closet cleaning," where you look at what you really need in your life and dispose of the rest. Ash Wednesday Mass begins at 8:55 a.m. in the gym. All are welcome to join us.

We will begin Lent with a Food Fast on Ash Wednesday. At brunch, our cafeteria will serve a modest meal of tortillas and beans for a donation of $5.00. No other option will be given, vending machines will be locked and we will only offer water to drink. We ask that all kids prayerfully participate. We ask that those who pack lunch, keep it simple, meatless and small, out of respect for those who are fasting. Proceeds from the Food Fast will go to Catholic Relief Services (CRS).

We will also begin our CRS Rice Bowl program where families spend less on food during Lent and the money saved is put into the paper Rice Bowl and donated to the poor the week before Easter. We strongly encourage all those in our community to participate in this intentional act of sacrifice.

Matt 25:45 "Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me."
