Lenten Rice Bowl
Each Lent, Catholic families across the country unite to put their faith into action through prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Through CRS Rice Bowl, families learn about how our sisters and brothers across the globe overcome hardships like hunger and malnutrition, and how through Lenten alms, we have the power to make the world a better place for all. Rice Bowl Collection Containers are available in the back of the Church along with a 40 Day Lenten Calendar. Please visit the web site that appears on the container for more information on this great Lenten activity.
Loaves & Fishes
The annual Loaves & Fishes campaign, a Lenten offering to feed our Fairfield County neighbors, sponsored by Catholic Charities is currently taking place without the traditional envelopes this year. Catholic Charities food service programs continue to pro-vide critically needed assistance via our soup kitchens, food pantries, and meal deliveries to the elderly. This year it is more critical to help our vulnerable neighbors struggling to feed their families due to the Covid-19 crisis. Catholic Charities is a leading provider of food resources throughout the county, serving over 1 million meals to individuals, families and the homebound elderly since the pandemic began, something all Catholics should take pride in. There are two ways to make your Loaves & Fishes donations today: 1) Give directly to Loaves & Fishes at www.ccfairfield.org/donate then select Loaves & Fishes when you make your donation. 2) Make your check payable to “Catholic Charities” and mail to Catholic Charities Finance; ATT: Loaves & Fishes, 238 Jewett Avenue, Bridgeport, CT 06606
