Dear Friends in Christ:
The Holy Season of Lent is a time for us to draw closer to God through the disciplines of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Through these traditional disciplines associated with the Forty Days of Lent, we seek a closer relationship with the Lord and strive to be more generous to those in need.
Our lives are truly blessed, rich in abundance meant to be shared in a way that blesses others. Lent is a time to remember those for whom each day is a struggle for survival. Sharing your blessings with those less fortunate is an expression of our gratitude for all God has given to us.
For 75 years, Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada has cared for the needs of infants, children, families, seniors and the homeless by providing food, shelter, employment, and crisis intervention. They not only provide a service but help others to live a life of dignity, deserving of all peoples.
I pray that as we journey through these Forty Days of Lent you will be attentive when asked what can be done to alleviate the suffering of our brothers and sisters and that you will join me in the support of Catholic Charities. The way of Lent is the way of good works, the way of loving service of others
Sincerely yours in the Christ Child,
Most Reverend Joseph A. Pepe, D.D., J.C.D.
Bishop of Las Vegas
