For Lent For Life 2020-Week #5

Even as we practice social distancing due to COVID-19, we are still able to strengthen our domestic church in solidarity and stay connected with our brothers and sisters around the world through the traditional Lenten practices of prayer, fasting and sacrifice with your family at home. For more ways on how to Bring Lent to Life at home, visit CRS Rice Bowl.


During this time when many children are home schooling and distance learning, let us pray for others around the world who also hunger for education.

For Maria Ana, whom we meet through CRS Rice Bowl, and all those attending school to achieve their dreams, may they receive the proper nutrition needed to focus on their studies and have a brighter future. We pray to the Lord …

That as a community we may recognize the importance of supporting students and their dreams, so that their communities can thrive.

We pray to the Lord …

Home & Family
