Journey With Us This Lent

This Lent, CNEWA invites you to pray together as we journey toward Easter during this season of sacrifice and almsgiving. Our world is full of men, women, and children who are suffering, hungry, wounded — and CNEWA’s mission is to reassure them of their dignity and help them know they are loved by God. 

Across these 40 days, as we mark the holy season of Lent and prepare for Easter, remember that just as Jesus sacrificed himself on the cross for us, even a much smaller sacrifice can make a profound difference in the lives of those who need it most. 

Last year, you helped us raise $442,890 to support the training of priests, sisters and lay people who accompany the church throughout the world. During Lent, we focus on the importance of sacrificial giving and prioritizing the needs of those around us. This Lenten season, we ask you to consider donating to CNEWA for support of the training of priests, sisters and lay people who fulfill our mission of hope and healing to the less fortunate. We thank you in advance. When you give alms to CNEWA, you’re bringing the hope and light of Christ to children, families and elderly people in despair. 

This year, it is our privilege to offer a daily prayer email that will be delivered to your inbox every morning during Lent at no cost! The email contains excerpts of the Scripture reading for each day from the lectionary, and reflections from the Holy Father’s writings, homilies, messages and general audiences. These inspiring words of Pope Francis are our gift to you, to help give focus and peace during this season.

Above all, know that as you take this Lenten journey, we are walking with you — and joining our prayers with yours and those of Pope Francis, who in his Easter messages last year wrote, “Every moment of our lives is a time for believing, hoping and loving.”

May that belief, hope and love journey with you this season and always!
