At the Ash Wednesday Mass, there will be a Chaplet available for you to pick up. The purpose of this Chaplet is to pray for a particular person; the first person that comes to mind when you start to pray.  It is meant to be prayed each day during Lent and sometime after Good Friday, you should give your Chaplet to the person that you prayed for.  We are asking for a free will donation ($5 suggestion) for the Chaplet with the money being used for Religious Education.  There will be a prayer card with instructions included with the Chaplet. This is a simple, easy way to both pray for someone and it is a great Lenten activity!  It “counts” as both Lenten prayer and Almsgiving!  The crucifix that is on the Chaplet came from Rome and was Blessed by Pope Francis!
