Living on $30 for food per week is the reality of 41 million fellow Americans today. At the Diocesan Convention, our Bishop posed a challenge before the delegates to try to live on $30 a week for a few weeks. Why don’t we at St. Peter’s, take up this challenge during Lent and Holy Week, not only to understand and become aware of the plight of fellow Americans but also to donate the savings we might realize from this challenge to feed the hungry in our neighborhood [pantry], support the work of Cristosal in El Salvador and to help with our Appalachia Service Project? It will also serve us a good Lenten discipline. The challenge begins on Ash Wednesday- March 5th.
