Entering into Lent with Catholics worldwide, it is a moment for us to stop and reflect on God’s mercy and love for us and all of creation.
As we pray, fast, and grow in faith with our local communities, let’s also focus on living in solidarity with the poor and vulnerable across the world, especially those suffering from the effects of the climate crisis.
There are many things happening this month and we hope you find one from this list that will help you live prayerfully and simply!
