Lent 2018

Saturday of the Fourth Week in Lent


It's St. Patrick's Day! Take time to read about the patron saint of Ireland and how he was a victim of human trafficking prior to his life as a priest and bishop.


On March 16, 2016, Pope Francis said in his general audience of St. Patrick: "May his spiritual strength inspire you, dear young people, to be consistent in your faith; may his faith in Christ the Savior sustain you, dear sick people, at the most difficult times; and may his missionary devotion remind you, dear newlyweds, of the importance of Christian education for your children."


Pray today for end to human trafficking.
