Did you know that Almsgiving is far greater than Charity?  To give alms is a response to God’s gifts and the needs of others – IT IS PRAYER!

As we come to the close of this Lenten season, it is time to return your Catholic Relief Service Rice Bowl.  We will begin collection of the Rice Bowls onPalm Sunday,  April 14. Collection baskets will be located in front of the sanctuary, or you can bring it to the parish house.  Our hope is that most families return the Rice Bowl at the Holy Thursday Mass (7:00 p.m. April 18 at St. Catherine), but you may return it anytime until April 28.  

The money you donate will be distributed to the St. Catherine Food Pantry (25%) and to the international work of Catholic Relief Services (75%).  If you prefer to write a check, make it payable to the parish with a notation RICE BOWL.
