Almsgiving  – Operation Rice Bowl 

Join our faith community—and more than 12,000 Catholic communities across the United States—in a life-changing Lenten journey with CRS Rice Bowl. Pick up your family’s CRS Rice Bowl at the doors of the church beginning on Ash Wednesday. If you are unable to pick up a Rice Bowl box, designate a special bowl in your home as a replacement. With Operation Rice Bowl, you are encouraged to have a smaller meal on Friday and donate to those who are food challenged. During the 40 days of Lent, we will reflect on how hunger and malnutrition affect our human family, and on the need to take action to end this global injustice. Visit crsricebowl.org to learn more.

During this pandemic year, the 25% of the donations that stay in the diocese have supported 25 grants for local hunger programs (totaling nearly $100,000). This year’s CRS Rice Bowl donations are critical for these grants to continue as the fund’s account is nearly depleted. Please support CRS Rice Bowl during Lent. Visit www.crsricebowl.org for details.
