Newsletter – 2023 February 28

“Lent is a time to return to what is essential. Fasting is the spiritual training ground where we shed the things that weigh us down. Almsgiving, charity, will be a sign of our compassion towards those in need, Prayer will give voice to our desire to encounter the Father. In God no act of love, no matter how small, and no generous effort will ever be lost.”

Pope Francis
