As we progress through this Season of Lent toward the joy of Easter, we are reminded of the journey and sacrifice that Christ made so we may obtain the blessing of eternal life. At Catholic Charities, we are also cognizant that every day there are people who find themselves in this life suffering on the margins of society and who lack the resources or relationships that provide the security of a job, a home or a supportive family or community.
