This week, part of our Operation Rice Bowl studies, we encounter Safiata, a mother, grandmother and farmer in Burkina Faso who relies on the money she makes from her crops to put her children through school. How can our purchases this Lent support farmers and artisans? How can you support those, worldwide, who are forced to flee their homes to find safety or better opportunities? Visit crsricebowl.org for more. 

Each Friday of Lent, there is an opportunity to attend 2:30 Mass, enjoy our parish Fish Fry and pray the Stations of the Cross.
Panther Prance
Panther Prance is March 23 .  We are really looking forward to it.  New this year is with your $15 donation you get into the dance and get a new Panther Prance t-shirt!  If you don't want to dance but still want to support the UK Children's Hospital, you can just send your donation in an envelope marked, "Panther Prance."  Parents that would like a Panther Prance t-shirt, you can just include an additional $10 ($5 for the t-shirt and a $5 donation to the hospital) on your child's order form and make sure to mark the size shirt you want on the form.  Thank you for supporting our MQ version of Dance Blue
To receive your t-shirt in time for the dance, your order form must be in by this Friday, March 9
