Our Mission: Catholic Charities is the primary social service agency of the Diocese of Pittsburgh, serving all,
regardless of religious affiliation, at their time of great need.

Lenten Prayer of Mercy

Lenten Prayer

Father, before Jesus began the Mission of Mercy for which you had sent him, he went apart for a time, fasting from food and drink so that he might be fed by your Word and empowered by your Spirit.

Help us during this Lenten Season to fast from the things of this world that fail to satisfy, so that we, too, might be fed by your Truth and strengthened by your Love to carry on your Son’s mission with our Words of Hope and our Works of Mercy.
