  1. Last year, I was catechist for a 7th grade group of 11 young people. We did a Lenten service project that focused the practices of fasting, alms-giving, and prayer, care for God’s creation from CTS and feed the hungry from corporal works of mercy. We incorporated prayer into learning about these teachings one week. The next week we assembled 47 beans and rice meal kits that included recipe suggestions, explanations of Lenten practices, and prayers. These were offered for a free-will donation at weekend Masses just before Lent as a way to raise awareness of hunger and to promote the practice of fasting. The free-will donations were added to the parish rice bowl collection.
