In the Lord’s Prayer, we petition the Lord for “our daily bread.” First and foremost, daily bread refers to our need for Jesus Christ, the Bread of Life. It also refers to other life essentials: food, drink, shelter, clothing, warmth, and love. Your gifts provide these necessities to those most in need throughout our diocese.
Our Lenten Appeal is 100% devoted to providing direct aid to our neighbors. It keeps the lights and heat on for the family struggling to make ends meet. It provides a month’s rent for someone on disability struggling to cover unplanned expenses. It offers bus tokens for someone to make it to his or her new job.
Please be the Lord’s hand in answering their requests for daily bread with your gift to Catholic Charities.
