Lenten Folders & Cans
The Annual Diocesan Lenten Folders and Cans Collection for Vocations is to begin on Ash Wednesday, March 5, 2014 and it continues through-out the season of Lent. Please take home with you a folder and/or can to participate. For many years now diocesan parishes and schools have participated with extraordinary efforts in this annual collection. The Lenten folders and cans are distributed to children, youth and adults before or on Ash Wednesday and they are collected during Holy Week. This annual collection supports the vocation office programs such as discernment retreats, youth and young adult discernment groups, the Posada Vocacional, the Altar Server Convocation, and ongoing vocation promotional materials among others. Bishop Mark J. Seiz and the Vocation office are grateful for your faithful support. Together We Are Building A Culture Of Vocations In Our Diocese.
