Almsgiving: What the Bible Says

Leave a comment

Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD,
and he will reward them for what they have done.
– Proverbs 19:17
In your bulletin this weekend is an almsgiving envelope. As in years past, our Lent Almsgiving offering will be given to the Society of St Vincent de Paul, to help them help those in need.
The Society of St Vincent de Paul operates
with the generosity of YOU.
Keep your almsgiving envelope somewhere you will notice it. Let it serve as a reminder that during Lent, we are asked to make a sacrifice of eating one small meal in place of a large one, and placing the difference of the cost into our almsgiving offering.
Your gift to the Society of St Vincent de Paul will help the poor to celebrate the grace of God’s love this Easter.

We are two Catholic Churches close to downtown Freeport, IL. Our communities are over 150 years old and have been dedicated to our lord Jesus Christ since our inception. We believe in God the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was concieved by the Holy Spirit, born of ythe Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilot, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell; on the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the father almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
