Lenten Almsgiving Opportunities; Called to Serve
As we begin this Lenten journey of 2023, we invite you to consider several Almsgiving opportunities throughout the Season of Lent! During the Season of Lent, we are called to observe almsgiving. Have you considered how you plan to practice almsgiving? How will you serve others as Jesus calls us to “Love one another.” We ask that you prayerfully consider supporting one of the almsgiving opportunities listed below.
A collection will be taken on Ash Wednesday to aid the church in Central and Eastern Europe and Africa.

Collection of grocery and toiletry items for the St. Francis Seraph Ministries, who assist the less fortunate in Cincinnati. A list of suggested items will be on the bag. The program is based on the Gospel Story in which Jesus took five loaves of bread and two fish offered by a small boy, and multiplied them to feel 5,000 people. Project 5000 allows community members to give small contributions of food/personal care items and see them multiplied into greater usefulness.
