Rice Bowl Collection
Reminder, that during Lent, we as a parish are called upon, to help our neighbors in need. We are being asked, to give alms for those less fortunate than ourselves. The Rice Bowl Collection is a way to give back.
As you enter church you will notice the two collection boxes un-der the Holy Water Founts. It is in there that you are being asked to place your monetary donation for the poor, as part of the Rice Bowl Collection.
Many of us walk by those boxes each week and never notice them. Occasionally someone notice and ask, “What are these?”
It is our hope that all parishioners will be able to answer that question, and say “they are the collection boxes for the poor and you just drop your donation in there, like this.” Please be gener-ous and help those less fortunate this Lenten season.
As always, we will also be collecting can and box food items for St. Lucy’s Food Pantry. The food pantry helps those who are in need, providing food, promoting the value of nutrition, increasing self-sufficiency, and instilling hope in those who have fallen on hard times.
“The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor” Proverbs 22:9
Please bring your food donations to the usher's room before each
