Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowl

We will be starting this year’s Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowl. Each lent we are called as Christians to feed the hungry through Lenten prayers, fasting and almsgiving. The CRS Rice Bowl is one way for us to help our brothers and sisters in need each Lent. Through this faith-in-action we can help change the lives of the poor. Please pick up a Rice Bowl for each member of your family after Masses. Your prayerful donations will go to help those in need throughout the world in the areas of: agriculture projects help farmers improve harvests, water and sanitation projects bring clean water to communities, Microfinance projects support small businesses, Mother and child health projects offer health and nutrition services, Education projects provide re-sources and training. 25% of donations collected will go to needed services in our own Dioceses. Bowls will be available after all Masses. Rice bowls need to be returned on Holy Thursday, March 24
