Lenten Outreach Project
I was a stranger and you welcomed me.
Join us during Lent as we partner with St. Leo the Great Parish in Oakland
and Catholic Charities of East Bay to provide financial assistance
to a newly settled refugee family from Afghanistan.
For more information about the program view this video:
Or read this guidebook:
You will find a letter from Bishop Barber on p 3,
Parish Responsibilities on p 10,
and Frequently Asked Questions on p 17 & 18.
You may begin to contribute to this worthy cause on the 2
Sunday of Lent (March 12)
Please make checks payable to St. Denis Parish and write “for Refugee Project.”
There will be colored envelopes in the pews and at the back of the church.
Place your check in the colored envelope and drop it into the collection basket
or bring it to the parish office.
