A Catholic Community in Solana Beach, California

ENCOUNTER LENT: Daily Prayer, Weekly Fasting, Almsgiving

ENCOUNTER LENT:  
Daily Prayer, Weekly Fasting, Almsgiving That Changes Lives

This Lent our community will participate in CRS Rice Bowl, a faith‐in‐action program that offers daily   opportunities for our parish family to engage in the spiritual pillars of Lent:  prayer, fasting and almsgiving.   And it’s an opportunity for our parish and school to come together as a community and reflect on what it means to live out the Gospel call to go to the margins and encounter those most in need.    During the next 40 days, we will encounter people from communities in India, Mexico, Ethiopia and other places around the world.  We’ll be invited to eat simple meatless meals from these countries and we will learn how we can put the principles of Catholic social   teaching into action during Lent and beyond.

Join our faith community—and nearly 14,000 Catholic communities across the United States—in a life‐changing Lenten journey of encounter with CRS Rice Bowl.   Pick up your CRS Rice Bowl in the vestibule of the church and don’t forget to download the CRS Rice Bowl app!  May these 40 days better prepare us to encounter ourselves, our neighbors and our God
