Lent is a special time in our spiritual journey, and St. Veronica invites you to participate in the Lenten Cross of Mercy in support of the mission of the House of Mercy in Manassas to provide food and clothing for those in need. The Lenten Cross, found in the north narthex, provides us with an opportunity to take part in prayer and almsgiving during Lent. It contains a variety of tags, for either spiritual or corporal works of mercy. Please select one or more tags and help make Christ’s mercy visible for those in need in our community. Return material items to the foot of the cross and monetary items to the parish office or mail them to the House of Mercy in the envelopes found at the foot of the cross. The House of Mercy thanks you for your donations that help make it possible to share God’s love. May God bless you abundantly!
