As we move from the joy of the Christmas season to the solemnity and reflection of Lent, I join our Board Relations Committee, and the Faith Committee of the Junior Board to invite your participation in “One Mission: Many Hearts, Many Hands.”
During each week of Lent we will learn about, be inspired by, and draw closer to the mission of Catholic Charities by focusing on a particular group that we serve: Homeless, Seniors, Families, Veterans, and Refugees. Through scripture, reflection, prayer, and activities we will educate ourselves, our families, and our communities, while we participate in the sacred work of serving those in need. As Pope Francis has said, “To love God and neighbor is not something abstract, but profoundly concrete: it means seeing in every person and face of the Lord to be served, to serve him concretely.”
Lent is a time of introspection, fasting, prayer, and almsgiving. Please become one of the “Many Hearts, Many Hands” that will join together in growing our compassion as one family of faith in the coming weeks.
May God Bless you and your families,
Monsignor Michael M. Boland
