SPECIAL COLLECTION: There will be a special collection taken up on Good Friday which will support the Christians in the Holy Land. This pontifical collection allows for the care of Christianity’s holiest sites and for our brothers and sisters living in the Holy Land. Please be as generous as your abundance allows.

RICE BOWL: We follow Jesus this week on our Lenten journey as he enters into Jerusalem, a community he knew well. CRS Rice Bowl asks us, too, to prayerfully enter into our own communities, to find those who are hungry and thirsty, who need our help. How does our Lenten journey motivate us to serve those we encounter in our daily lives? (Rice Bowls can be placed in the collection basket on the weekend after Easter, April 11th & 12th.)

KJZT JUNIORS: The KJZT Junior Division will lead Stations of the Cross on Good Friday, April 3. Juniors need to wear their royal blue t-shirts and jeans. Please meet in the back of church no later than 2:45 pm.
