 2017 Diocesan Lenten Appeal

Donate Now

The Lenten season presents us with a unique opportunity to deepen our relationship with Christ and his church. This year, I ask that we all give special consideration to three practices that strengthen and help define our faith as Catholics, those being prayer, serving and almsgiving.

In terms of prayer, I suggest that we continue or renew our commitment to daily prayer. The rewards of prayer are enormous in terms of bringing greater spirituality and peace to our lives. There are so many ways in which we can serve one another, whether it be through orgainzed volunteer activities or extending simple, conscious kindnesses to family and neighbors. Serving creates a stronger, more thoughtful community. Finally, I ask that you consider giving to the Diocesan Lenten Appeal​. The Appeal ensures the future of our faith and that the Diocese of Greensburg can continue its mission of offering compassion to our neighbors and brining the good news of Jesus Christ to the members of our community.

Prayer, serving and giving are acts of faith that we perform because we are Catholic. It is my hope we all make them a signifigant part of our lives this Lent.

- Bishop Edward Malesic
