Through CRS Rice Bowl, we share the journey with members of our human family around the world, and commit our Lenten prayers, fasting and almsgiving to deepening our faith and serving those in need.
Orders for free CRS Rice Bowl materials can be placed online at www.crsricebowl.org. These materials will be shipped in January and can be expected to arrive in late January to early February. A wealth of resources to help you plan your 2020 Rice Bowl campaign can be found on the CRS Rice Bowl website. Planning guides for parishes and schools, prayer resources, marketing materials, lesson plans for all grade levels and more are all available in English and Spanish.
