Lent is a time for introspection, fasting, prayer, and almsgiving. The season is an ideal time to reflect upon the importance of the mission of Catholic Charities. This Lenten season, our clients are praying for an angel to answer their prayers and keep them safe.
Will you be an angel to those in need?
By sharing your blessings this Easter, you will show love and compassion to thosewho need it most.
• Antonio, Cristina and their young daughter are homeless. Cristina has physical and mental health concerns, which have been severe enough to require hospitalization. This motivated couple is working hard to find employment.They pray for an angel.
• Patricia, 83, is a single woman who lives alone. She struggles with depression and often feels isolated. Living on a very low income, Patricia collects scrap metal and cashes it in to make ends meet. She prays for an angel.
• Jennifer escaped from an abusive marriage and now has custody of her three children. Although she has a job, Jennifer doesn’t have an income that supports her family. She prays for an angel.
• Jack is a veteran who has experienced homelessness after serving active duty in the military. He and his wife are expecting their first baby and are eager to build a better life for their family. He prays
for an angel.
During Lent, we should be renewed in our compassion for those who are hungry, suffering or otherwise in need. Please be an angel as we reach out to others and help them without question as a way of sharing the experience of God’s unconditional love.
Catholic Charities has been blessed with a very special angel. For every dollar you donate, our angel will match it – up to $50,000.
Bless you for your support of Catholic Charities and those we serve. Together we are lifting families and communities out of poverty and on a path toward self-sufficiency and stability! If you are unable to send a gift, please remember our clients in your prayers.
