Parishes in the Diocese of Sacramento will take up a special collection for Catholic Relief Services (shared with the collection for the Church in Central and Eastern Europe) during liturgies on the weekend of March 30-31.
The Catholic Relief Services collection is taken up to help "Jesus in disguise." This collection helps six Catholic agencies provide relief and support to struggling communities and work for peace and reconciliation among our marginalized brothers and sisters in the United States and around the world.
During the Season of Lent Christians replicate Jesus Christ's sacrifice and withdrawal into the desert. How do we maintain our joy amidst life's challenges as we accompany the youth and young adults in our communities? Join us for a Lenten day of reflection to strengthen your commitment to Jesus and to be renewed in your service to God's holy people.
