24 March 2019 – Third Sunday of Lent

How can you “Live the Gospel” when life is so busy?

Many people help those in need by volunteering at a local organization. But if your schedule doesn’t allow for it, you can still make a huge impact in your community by supporting ShareLife-funded agencies. Next Sunday is the first ShareLife collection. Over the next week, please reflect on your ability to “Live the Gospel” by making a sacrificial gift to our parish ShareLife campaign.

Next Sunday, March 31st is ShareLife Sunday. Please give generously.

Coins for Life is a project promoted by Campaign Life Coalition.  It does not receive any funding from the Archdiocese Charities.  Thank you to all those who picked up the boxes and are trying to Save for Life during Lent.

“Choose Life, then that you and your descendants may live, by loving the Lord, your God, heeding his voice, and holdings fast to him.” Deut 30:19
