Lansing, Mich. – Especially during the Lenten season, everyone should “redouble both their prayers and their generosity” for the people of Flint still struggling with unsafe drinking water through the city’s water crisis, said Lansing Bishop Earl Boyea.

“It is gratifying to see that Catholic communities in Michigan and beyond have come forward to assist the remarkable efforts of Catholic Charities,” he said in a statement.
