Operation Rice Bowl
(1260 reads)
Join our faith community - and nearly 14,000 Catholic communities across the United States - in a life-changing Lenten journey of encounter with CRS Rice Bowl beginning on Ash Wednesday. After Mass Rice Bowls will be available on the back table of the Parish and made available throughout Lent. We will collect the Rice Bowls on Holy Thursday and Good Friday March 29 & 30. The CRS Rice Bowl is a faith-in-action program that invites us to encounter anew ourselves, our neighbors and our God. As we the global Church prepare for the holy season of Lent it is especially appropriate to come together in prayer as a family, reflecting on the role we each have to play in building up God’s one human family. Please consider these suggestions for your family’s Lenten season:
  • Use your CRS Rice Bowl and Lenten Calendar daily to guide your Lenten prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
  • As a family, read the Stories of Hope and daily reflections to inspire your Lenten journey - and guide your Lenten almsgiving.
  • Prepare simple meatless meals on Fridays throughout Lent, in solidarity with our brothers and sisters around the world.
http://www.crsricebowl.org/ is a great resource to watch videos of the people and communities your Lenten gifts help change through your Rice Bowl donations. Thank you for considering using the Rice Bowl with your family and taking the time during the upcoming 40 Days of Lent to better prepare yourself to encounter our neighbors and our God.
