CMMB: Ash Wednesday: Prayer, Penance and Charity

Catholic Medical Mission Board

Dear John,

Join CMMB in prayer this Lent 
Today is Ash Wednesday – the beginning of Lent. As we begin these next forty days of prayer, penance and charity, let us keep in mind those who are suffering around the world. May our sacrifices be in honor and in memory of them.

We remember those who are served by CMMB’s medical volunteers, and those who receive health care and donated medical supplies. And we especially remember those still waiting for help to arrive.

CMMB has been serving God's suffering children for over 100 years. Recently, a National Catholic Reporter article said we "...effectively exported the provision of U.S. health care to the poorest of the poor living in the farthest reaches in the world." It's a statement that well defines our work – work that we've only accomplished with your charitable support.

May your faith be a source of strength during Lent. Please keep CMMB, and all those we serve, in your prayers.
