Parish Lenten Activities
CRS Rice Bowls are available in the Church vestibule, giving Sacred Heart parish the opportunity to join Catholics throughout the country to help those in need around the world. Funds collected in the rice bowls, which are turned in at the end of Lent, are distributed both around the world and in local communities to combat hunger—75 percent of every donation goes to CRS programming in targeted countries worldwide while 25 percent remains in the local diocese from which the donation came, supporting initiatives that help alleviate poverty. Please take a CRS Rice Bowl home for your Lenten almsgiving!
As another Lenten journey of conversion begins on Ash Wednesday, February 14, and ends with the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday, March 29, Holy Mother Church calls all Catholics to a deeper spirit of penance, fasting, almsgiving, prayer and worship, “which express conversion in relation to oneself, to God, and to others” (Catechism of the Catholic Church #1434 & 1969). In order to foster a greater spirit of penance, of reparation for sin, to encourage self-denial, Catholics are reminded of the following obligations of fasting and abstinence that are part the proper observance of Lent. Read the the full regulations.
