Please kindly returned your filled CRS Rice Bowl to the Church this weekend.
Thank you for your support and generosity!
CRS Rice Bowl is the Lenten program of Catholic Relief Services, the official relief and development agency of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. Through CRS Rice Bowl, faith communities in dioceses throughout the United States put their faith into action through prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Lenten alms donated through CRS Rice Bowl support the work of CRS in more than 100 different countries each year. Twenty-five percent of donations to CRS Rice Bowl stay in the local diocese, supporting hunger and poverty alleviation efforts. Since its inception in 1975, CRS Rice Bowl has raised nearly $300 million.

Rice Bowls are available in the back of the church for you to pick up and take home to fill with your donation. The Rice Bowls will be collected at Church at the end of Lent.
There is also an option to make your donation online https://mobilizecrs.donordrive.com/team/5947
