Each year parishes in the Diocese of San Diego are asked to participate in the Annual Lenten Collection, which supports the Church in Africa, the Church in Latin America and Catholic Relief Services. Envelopes are available in the gathering area or you can make your donation online. The collection is next week. On the envelope you may designate your contribution to one or more of the three causes included in this collection. Special collections provide an opportunity for us as individuals and as a parish faith community to reach out in solidarity and assist those in need elsewhere in the world.
