Lent

Our church is a blessing. Despite the swirling world around us, the Church’s liturgy keeps moving at a steady and well ordered pace. Lent is upon us and our parish ministry team has reflected on how we can best walk together in prayer during these sacred days.

Rice Bowls

Through Rice Bowl, we learn about how our sisters and brothers across the globe overcome hardships like hunger and malnutrition, and how we have the power to make the world a better place for all.

This simple cardboard box is a tool for collecting Lenten alms - and comes with a Lenten calendar that guides families through the 40 days of Lent with activities, reflections and stories.
