Instead of giving up something for Lent, the Lenten Challenge is a way to give back.


Here’s how to participate:

  • Get a box or bag that you can collect items in.
  • Each day, put something in it (E.g. non-perishable food items, sanitary items, etc.)
  • At the end of Lent, bring the full box to one of our soup kitchens/food pantries!

Participating Catholic Charities of Fairfield County food programs: Morning Glory Breakfast, New Covenant Center, Room to Grow Preschool, Thomas Merton Center.

Visit our soup kitchen / food pantry wish lists to find needed items.
