CRS Rice Bowl a Lenten Family Activity

Ash Wednesday, March 6, marks the beginning of Lent. To enrich your crs-rice-bowl-logojourney and make a difference in the lives of others, Catholic Relief Services (CRS) invites us to enhance our Lenten experience through
prayer, fasting and almsgiving.

Read personal stories about the people CRS helps every day, daily reflections and recipes for meatless meals by clicking here.  Use a special bowl to collect coins in conjunction with the calendar as a way of sharing our many blessings.

As always, 75% of your contribution to Operation Rice Bowl supports CRS’ humanitarian relief programs in nearly 100 countries worldwide.  25% remains in our diocese to support the fight against local hunger and poverty.  Through the Catholic Foundation’s World Missions office we support the outreach ministry of Catholic Relief Services.
