Please turn in your Operation Rice Bowl before Palm Sunday (March 28).
Timor-Leste has the highest rate of child malnutrition in Asia, (46 per cent of children under five suffer from chronic malnutrition, and many children suffer from stunting, which makes a big impact on a child’s growth and future. Home gardens and fishponds are helping families provide better nutrition for their children. What do you eat to stay healthy? What can you do to ensure children have enough food to thrive?

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.
IC Parishioners can also directly donate via the IC website – GIVE NOW.
