40 CANS for 40 DAYS
The Knights of Columbus would like to host a program for Lent called “40 Cans for 40 Days.” For each of the 40 days of Lent, you are invited to bring a can of food to the church (or all at once each Sunday) and leave it in the collection barrel as you enter church. This corporal work of mercy promotes solidarity with those in need and constantly reminds us of the needs of others. Food will be given to the East County Resource Center in Washougal.
