Lenten Luncheons celebrate Catholic Charities mission to provide service to those in need, to advocate for justice and to call upon others to do the same. Proceeds from the luncheon go directly to help support Catholic Charities' programs and will have a positive impact in the lives of the people we serve. 99% of those we serve are affected by poverty. 

 

By sponsoring the annual Lenten Luncheon, you are a partner in our mission to serve those most in need in our local communities. We hope you'll join us, and please consider being a sponsor.
