Pray. Fast. Give – A Special Ash Wednesday Message

""Do not offend the Lord Our God any more, for He is already too much offended!": Our Lady of Fatima
May the Virgin Mary, with her loving Child, bless us!


“The creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God”—Romans 8:19
Dear Friends,
Today begins the season of Lent, our journey toward the joy of Easter. We prepare for this celebration through fasting, prayer, and almsgiving.

In Pope Francis' Lenten message this year, he refers to the words of St. Paul, and warns that when we fail to live as children of God, our behavior toward our neighbors becomes destructive and so too our communion with God. So now, perhaps more than ever, our world 
relies on compassionate people like you to bring love and hope to our neighbors most in need.
Pope Francis' words inspire us to open our hearts to the vulnerable and forgotten: "Let us leave behind our selfishness and self-absorption, and turn to Jesus. Let us stand beside our brothers and sisters in need, sharing our spiritual and material good with them."

As you reflect on this Lenten message, please consider making a gift from your heart to those who need it most. Your Ash Wednesday gift of $100, $200, or any amount, or any amount will bring health and dignity to women and children living in poverty.

Today, let's share the hope of Christ and reveal ourselves as children of God.
May God Bless You,

President and CEO
