Lent Giving Opportunities
During the liturgical season of Lent, the Church asks us to focus our efforts on prayer, fasting and ‘almsgiving’ by renewing our compassion for those who are hungry, suffering, or otherwise in need. As an individual or parish community, you can directly help Catholic Charities clients through any of the bundle collections listed below. This is a concrete way of sharing the experience of God’s unconditional love for poor with client families in our local communities.
Did you know that 94% of Catholic Charities’ clients live at or below the national poverty level and have extremely limited budgets? Often, after paying for rent, utilities and food, clients do not have the money to take care of other needs. Anything you can do to help provide some the items listed below would be greatly appreciated. We serve people of all faiths throughout the ten counties of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.
