St. John the Compassionate Mission

The Call: OCN’s Weekly Newsletter: St. John the Compassionate

Fr. Roberto Umbertino, of the St. John the Compassionate Mission in Toronto, Canada, discusses this social ministry on “Come Receive the Light” this week.  To access this audio presentation, click on http://www.myocn.net/index.php/CRTL/

Today is the beginning of Great Lent, in which fasting, prayer, and almsgiving are to be practiced in a more focused way, as we prepare our hearts to follow Him to the Cross, and through the Cross, to the Great Joy of Christ’s Holy Resurrection.

Missions like these need support.
