This Lent, we invite you to share the journey of Norma, Annet, Christyan, Kumba and Ona by following the links to CRS Rice Bowl. With each link to their video journey, each will share their personal story of how CRS Rice Bowl has made a difference in their lives.
We hope you and your family will share their journey week by week.

Lent begins Wednesday, March 6, 2019. Did you know that 25% of CRS Rice Bowl donations stay in our local communities? CRS engages people at every level—individual, family, community, regional, national and international—to promote transformative and sustainable change by providing health and medical services, clean water and sanitation, justice and peacebuilding, and working with at risk families displaced from war ravaged countries. CRS Rice Bowl is our sacrifice.
CRS Lenten Rice Bowls will be available before Ash Wednesday to Religious Education classes and available to parishioners who wish to participate.
Sunday, April 28th before and after Mass. (There will be only one (1) return date so as not to conflict with Communion dates.)
*Note: For the Religious Education class returning the most Rice Bowls there will be a class surprise!
Friday, January 18 is the 46th Annual March for Life in Washington, DC. This will be a full day event to include pro-lie speakers, Christian band performances, the March for Life, food and fellowship. If you are interested in attending with fellow parishioners, please contact Ellen (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Kendall (email@example.com) or call the Saints Katharine Drexel Mission Office at (703) 754-8444.
Don’t forget to bring your Capital Campaign pledge envelope to Mass this week to place in the collection basket. If you didn’t receive an envelope or can’t locate your mailing, you can also print a pledge form from our website.
Remember, even if you decide to give online through the convenience of Faith Direct, we ask that you complete a pledge form to help us properly track the campaign and secure financing.

A big note of thanks to Matthew Lorzing and Eagle Scout Troup #1882. For Matthew’s Eagle Scout project, he and members of his Troop built a bridge on the back property of the St. Katharine Drexel Mission Office to complete the Rosary Walk positioned around the pond. What a beautiful and tranquil spot for prayer. Thank you, Matthew!
