Our Lenten Discipline of Prayer, Fasting, Almsgiving and Works of Mercy:

Please be sure to take one of the Lenten Offering Cans (available in the narthex) home and return it to church on Palm Sunday.  Funds collected will benefit the needy — primarily through the work of St. Francis Dining Hall.

Additionally, a bucket in the narthex is for “Pennies for Parkinson’s” —a special project for Spring.

And finally, a box in the narthex marked “Box Top Education” is to collect box top labels that can be redeemed to benefit Agia Sophia Academy.
