During Lent our community will participate in CRS Rice Bowl, a faith-in-action program that invites us to encounter the needs of the world with the hope of the Resurrection.
We will reflect on how this encounter can be transformative. We will see how our Lenten prayers, fasting and almsgiving can respond to Pope Francis’s invitation to Share the Journey by supporting those worldwide who are forced to flee their homes to find safety or better opportunities. Use your CRS Rice Bowl and Lenten Calendar (attached below) daily to guide your prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
As we prepare for this holy season, it is especially important to come together as a family and reflect on the crosses of hunger, poverty and war that our brothers and sisters forced to flee their homes carry. In so doing, we pledge to stand alongside these members of our human family, supporting them as the Gospel calls us to do.
We will collect your CRS Rice Bowls on April 23.
Thank you for participating in CRS Rice Bowl with your family.
