Good Friday Lenten Tip from Pope Francis

Express Our Faith in Action

 “We must express our faith in action.”
-Pope Francis

Today, Good Friday, when we round out 40 days of Lent, let’s use this period of prayer and fasting as an opportunity to build our faith and a reminder to express this faith in action.

At Catholic Charities in any given year we:

  • protect and nurture nearly 60,000 children each year
  • provide more than 5 million meals to the hungry and homeless
  • help nearly 100,000 families and individuals facing crises
  • serve nearly 20,000 children and adults who face physical & emotional challenges
  • serve more than 40,000 immigrants and refugees

This Good Friday our final tip, thanks to Pope Francis, is to transform faith to action.

Join us on Good Friday and get involved
