  • Greener Lent: The Diocese of Raleigh, NC is promoting this excellent program designed for Catholics to reduce their impact on the environment through a community Lenten fast. Acknowledging that the poor are affected first and most by the climate crisis, and in keeping with Catholic tradition of abstaining from meat on certain days during Lent, we reduce our environmental impact by reducing our own meat consumption and as a sign of repentance and love of our neighbors who are most vulnerable to the effects of the climate crisis. All parishes/families everywhere are welcome to join! Flyer available here.
     
  • CRS Bring Lent to Life at Home-wonderful resource to help families observe Lenten practices of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Participate in Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowl and connect with families throughout the world.
     
  • Laudato Si' LentLent 2021: A Journey of Hope
