Churches coordinate almsgiving efforts

Father Dan Schuster is helping make sure members of his two Kewaunee County churches are covered when it comes to observing the Lenten season. Ash Wednesday kicked off Lent for area Christians, which use the time to follow three fundamental principles: fasting, praying, and almsgiving. This year marks the first time Luxemburg’s St. Mary’s Catholic Church and Casco’s Holy Trinity Church will call on members to support one local cause and one worldwide mission during Lent. Schuster says the holy time provides an excellent opportunity for people to give back.

During Lent, Holy Trinity Church will collect donations for the Casco Fire Department and San Benito Jose Medical Center in Honduras. St. Mary’s Catholic Church will use the time to increase its support for the local food pantry and Christians living in the Holy Land.
