Lent is upon us! It's time to recharge our batteries as followers of Christ and jump-start our discipleship. How do we do this? We spend 40 days praying, fasting and giving alms as we prepare ourselves for the great feast of Easter. We spend time discussing/pondering its deeper meanings. Innovative people help us discover ways we can creatively pray for greater meaning, fast from things other than food, and give alms with the greatest of love.
Here are some of the opportunities YOU have to plan for a meaningful Lenten experience in 2014. Just Click on each link below to learn more about that program.

We, the people who are St. Christopher Roman Catholic Church, bonded by our Baptism in Jesus Christ, are a pilgrim community journeying toward God our Father. Guided by the Holy Spirit we are called to discipleship which requires us to be informed by the Gospel challenge, and to be nurtured by prayer and Eucharist. As a welcoming community, respectful of all life and all God's gifts, we support each other in fulfilling the call to service in our families, our community and our world.
