Poverty Awareness Month

January is Poverty Awareness Month. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has an interactive calendar page with links to videos, podcasts, prayers, and other information about poverty. You can learn more here.
The Eucharist, celebrated as a community, teaches us about human dignity, calls us to the right relationship with God, ourselves and others, invites us to community and solidarity, and sends us on mission to help transform our communities, neighborhoods and world. Church teaching, rooted in both Scripture and Tradition, emphasizes both the personal and social natures of the Eucharist.
