  • CATHOLIC RELIEF SERVICES (CRS) RICE BOWL:  What is CRS Rice Bowl?  Each Lent, Catholic Relief Services encourage catholic families across the country to unite and put their faith into action through prayer, fasting and alms giving.  Through CRS Rice Bowl, families learn how our brothers and sisters across the globe overcome hardships like hunger and malnutrition, and how through Lenten alms, we have the power to make the world a better place for all.  CRS Rice Bowl shares stories of hope from CRS’ work around the world. These stories are examples of your alms giving at work.  Take a virtual tour of Madagascar, El Salvador and Timor-Leste by checking the web site below.
