As we begin our Lenten practice of almsgiving as a community, you are invited to participate in a collection throughout Lent that will be dedicated to our local sisters and brothers who find hope through City of Angels, a local organization that seeks to guide people with addictions to treatment and support them in their recovery. As the weeks of Lent unfold, it is suggested that you give up some item that week and contribute that amount to the family's housing. A collection box is located near the cross in the church.

As Christians we are called to honor God as the Creator of Heaven and Earth, of all seen and unseen; we are called to be stewards of creation, to "tend the garden" and take good care of our common home, planet Earth. One way of protecting our common home is to be conscious of the impact we have on the environment, to be conscious of the use of our resources. Our parish and school have long been participants in the recycling programs of the Princeton community; i.e. single stream recycling of paper, plastic, etc.. Recently, we have installed a suitable recycling bin in the church vestibule. Please recycle your used paper and plastic bottle waste in our new recycling bin in the church vestibule!
