2015 Lenten Appeal

We have begun the holy season of Lent, a great period of penance and interior renewal in preparation for Easter. True renewal and interior conversion can happen if we are sincere with ourselves and use the spiritual tools of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. In these next forty days, through the celebration of the Sacred Liturgy and hearing God’s Word, Jesus will present Himself to us in all the wonderful simplicity of the Gospel. Your contribution to the Bishop’s Annual Lenten Appeal helps to provide the base of support for the pastoral, education and charitable services that are provided throughout the Diocese of Harrisburg. Please keep in mind that your generous contribution to the Bishop's Annual Lenten Appeal can result in a significant financial benefit for our parish.
