The St. John-St. Paul Collaborative is blessed to have strong traditions of charitable outreach in each of its vibrant parishes.  One such tradition was the St. John Parish Lenten Gift.

In 2017 we began a new tradition – a Collaborative Lenten Gift. 

Each year, in preparing for Lent, we make the choice to reach out as a community to one particular suffering, amid so many in this world. Our Lenten Gift allows each of us to share in easing the suffering, and to answer Lent’s clarion call to love extravagantly.

2024: Capuchin Mobile Ministries
