40 Cans for Lent
For many families in our community, ongoing economic hardships have resulted in daily struggles to put food on their tables. Some people simply don’t have enough food to eat and go to bed hungry.
This year the St. Rose of Lima St. Vincent de Paul Conference will be joining our Parish’s Knights of Columbus members in their “40 Cans for the 40 Days of Lent” program. We aspire to have each parishioner at St Rose of Lima contribute one can of food per day throughout the 40 days of Lent, beginning on Ash Wednesday, February 26th and concluding on Holy Thursday, April 9th. Donations of canned food or dry goods can be placed in the donation box located in the vestibule of the Church. All donations will be delivered to local food banks on April 9th. Each day of Lent we also ask you to say the following prayer at meal time for those needy individuals and families throughout the world.
Make us worthy, Lord, to serve those people throughout the world who live and die in poverty and hunger. Give them through our hands, this day, their daily bread, and by our understanding love, give them peace and joy. Amen (Prayer for the Poor by St. Mother Teresa)
Thank you and may God Bless You!
