Lenten Outreach

In this holy season, through fasting, prayer, penance, repentance, almsgiving, and self-denial, we commemorate what Jesus experienced in the desert before He began his public ministry.

Lenten Collections for our Brothers & Sisters – Ash Wednesday to Palm Sunday

The Biblical admonition to give alms to the poor as a means of obtaining God’s forgiveness has a special significance in Lent. Our Lenten practices of self–denial in food and drink can enable us to give food to the poor.

Our parish has collected food for Irondequoit Community Cupboard, St. Andrews, Sr. Regis and LaCasa. In addition, Operation Rice Bowl materials are distributed to Faith Formation students and available in church for anyone who wants to participate. Locally, 25% of Rice Bowl funds “come back” to our area to fund hunger–relief projects across the diocese.

Collection items are:

Canned non-perishable food items – soup, tuna, peanut butter, jelly and jams, canned stew, canned chili, canned hash, pasta, fruit, cereal, mac & cheese, rice, coffee, crackers
Personal care items – bar soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, feminine hygiene products, shaving cream, disposable razors, combs, hair brushes
General household – paper toweling, toilet paper, 30-gallon trash can liners

Help is needed storing items after Masses and delivery.
