The Third Week of Lent: Better and Better

Making good Choices helps us to grow as children of God. Once Jesus invited a tax collector to make a choice to be a follower of Jesus. The tax collector made the choice to leave his work and follow Jesus. The Man’s name was Mathew. He became one of Jesus’ first disciples.

Jesus asks us to follow him too. During Lent, we take special care to do the things Jesus asks us to do. We forgive. We find ways to make peace. We give to others who are in need.  WE ASK God to help us make everything just a little bit better.
As we begin our Lenten journeys, we also begin our participation in CRS Operation Rice Bowl, as a way to connect with our brothers and sisters in need around the world through the traditional Lenten practices of prayer, fasting and almsgiving.

Be a part of CRS’ Operation Rice Bowl and take action on behalf of the poor and vulnerable this Lent. You can participate and make a difference. Pick up your Rice Bowl at the back of the church.
