The Lenten Food Drive is a collection by schools and parishes in the Archdiocese of Washington. Begun during the visit to Washington, D.C., by Pope Benedict, the drive provides hundreds of thousands of pounds of food to local food banks and parish pantries each year.
Donations will benefit hungry families in our community, stocking shelves at your local food bank, Catholic Charities’ Southern Maryland Food Bank and the Capital Area Food Bank.
Simply fill a bag with food and bring it to your parish or school by the deadline. Schools: March 21-25, 2022. Parishes: March 26 and 27, 2022.
For more information, visit the Lenten Food Drive web page.

The “In the Name of the Mother” charity golf outing is an event organized by donors that provides crucial funding to help mothers battling cancer in crisis. Join them for an incredible day on the course as they continue this tradition and support important work in our community.
The fund was established in 2005 by Kevin McConville and his family and friends to honor Megan McConville, Kevin’s wife, who passed away from cancer in November 2004. The mission of “In the Name of the Mother” is to provide financial aid to mothers diagnosed with cancer, based on the principle that no mother undergoing cancer treatment should have to worry about how to keep food on her family’s table or how to keep her children safe and cared for. The money provided by “In the Name of the Mother” has provided financial assistance for rent, utilities, house cleaning, medical needs, food, wigs and specialty clothes.
Please join us for the 17th Annual “In the Name of the Mother” charity golf outing on Friday, Sept. 9. Registration begins at 9 a.m., with the shotgun start at 10 a.m. A silent auction will be included. The event ends with a dinner.
To register or to become a sponsor, visit the event web page.
While golf is fun and what brings us together, we truly do it for one reason only – the Catholic Charities Legal Network helps to change the trajectory of someone’s life for the better. Your loyal support and historic generosity are more important than ever before. Please join us on Sept. 26.
10:30 a.m. Registration
11 a.m. Classic cookout
