“Buy a Bag of Rice” for St. Joseph, LaLomas, Haiti Haiti Lenten mission begins on Ash Wednesday.
A 50 pound bag of rice can be purchased in Haiti for $40.00; 7 bags of rice per day feeds the children (over 2000) in 2 schools. Last year St. Mark parishioners generously gave almost $18,000 which provided a meal for the children for 65 days! Our goal this year is $20,000! Donations can be made by check (payable to St. Mark) or cash by mailing or dropping it off at the parish office or put in the collection basket, marked to Haiti. This year you also have the option of making a donation through Faith Direct as a real time gift by going to the following link. https://membership.faithdirect.net/givenow/md343/21124. You can use this option even if you are not enrolled in faith direct! I used to pray that God would feed the hungry, but now I pray that He will guide me to do whatever I’m supposed to do, what I can do!
