This Lent Stretch Out Your Hands with Hope for Your Mission Family...

"My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?" In our darkest days, we may feel like crying out, as Jesus did on the Cross, yet we remember that God did not abandon His beloved Son, but raised Him from death to glory. And God does not abandon us.

During Lent especially, you can extend this message of hope to those in great need around our world. You can answer the call of Pope Francis made during his visit to Africa, after visiting the poorest of the poor: "We must stretch out our hands, as Jesus does with us" – to our mission family...
- to Sisters in Madagascar who rescue little ones from human trafficking, providing them with an education
- to catechists in one of the largest slums in Kenya, who visit the sick, pray with the dying and teach children the mercy and hope of the Savior
- to priests and Sisters in Ethiopia who reach out to children and families in danger of starvation, saving lives and revealing the Lord’s compassion

In the midst of our struggles, we find hope in the message of Jesus’ Resurrection. Will you support local priests, Sisters and lay catechists who help the poor of the Missions experience that same hope and joy!
