Lenten Speaker Series

Lenten Speaker Series, CRS Rice Bowl Collections, & Fish Taco Dinner Evening
Sponsored by Social Justice Ministry

To put our faith into action, the Social Justice Committee invites parishioners to learn about the many ways we can make a difference for those in need.

During the Fridays of Lent, guest speakers are invited to
explain the services their respective ministries provide.

CRS Rice Bowls provide funds for Catholic Relief Services to help those around the world in times of need and crisis when you put in your donations. Put in a little or a lot, it all helps. $9001.00 was collected at St. Martin and given to CRS Rice Bowl in 2017 (Thank You). In addition to Rice Bowl collection boxes being handed out at our Friday Lenten Speakers Series, they aare also handed out after Masses during Lent so everyone can participate. You can donate any time of the year as well:
