Parish Lenten Project 2024

This year, our Parish Lenten Project is for the benefit of the St. Joseph Housing Initiative (SJHI).

Each Lent, every Catholic is asked to take up some form of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving, and our Parish Lenten Project is an opportunity for us to do that collectively as a parish family, praying, sacrificing, and giving for the good of this valuable Catholic ministry which serves families in need right here in our local community.

As a faith-based organization, the mission of SJHI is to create vibrant communities through affordable quality housing where low and moderate income families can thrive, prosper, and build wealth.

The mission of SJHI closely aligns with our parish values and vision for the community and offers an excellent opportunity to put our faith into action this Lent.

So how can you help?

  • Pray for the success of the work of St. Joseph Housing Initiative.
  • Pray for families and individuals moving into their new homes.
  • Give money to support the work of SJHI. You can donate online (see link below) or using the SJHI envelopes found in the Church pews.
  • Donate items for “welcome baskets” given to new homeowners upon move-in! We will collect items at the parish and school. Dates TBA.
  • Serve with parish members and SJHI volunteers at house work days later this spring. We will be doing pre-move in cleanings, landscaping, and building fencing. Dates TBA.
