Students give back, help others during Lenten Season

Posted:

The foundational call of Christians to charity is a frequent theme of the Gospels. During Lent, the faithful are asked to focus more intently on “almsgiving,” which means donating money or goods to the poor and performing other acts of charity. As one of the three pillars of Lenten practice, almsgiving is “a witness to fraternal charity” and “a work of justice pleasing to God.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 2462)
