We, the Little Sisters of the Poor, invite you to join us on our spiritual pilgrimage of renewal and hope…
From Ashes to Easter (March 6 – April 18)
We invite you to observe this Lenten Journey with an offering for the Little Sisters of the Poor of $1 a day each of the 40 days of Lent.
The Easter Triduum of Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday could be marked by alms-giving of $5 each day for the work of the Little Sisters in anticipation of Easter and the celebration of our Redemptions.
On Easter Sunday you are invited to give an unlimited gift to express your thanksgiving to the Lord for His Gift of Enteral Life.
Share this prospect with your relatives, friends and co-workers and let them also follow in your footsteps on this Lenten Journey.
The Little Sisters and the elderly, for whom we care, wish you a Holy Lent and a Blessed Easter!
Note: On our website, you can create a weekly, monthly or other recurring donation or make a one-time donation. Either way, be assured that your support will go a long way in assisting us in our ministry to care for the needy aged of Washington, D.C.
With your help we are able to offer enriching activities, clothing, medical care, nourishing meals, and 36,500 nights of safe shelter, each year. We very much appreciate the desire to help us carry on these efforts.
Inspiration for your Lenten Journey: Pope Francis, in one of his Lenten messages, took inspiration from the words of St. Paul (Cor 8:9) and asks us to contemplate Paul’s invitation to live “a life of evangelical poverty.” Embrace His call by fasting from or “giving up” material things, including food, superfluous to your basic needs, “taking up” charitable habits directed to helping and caring for others, and “lifting up” those in need through giving alms, praying and participating in devotional practices.
