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.
Owing to the pandemic, we know that distributing and collecting physical Rice Bowls is not an option for most communities. This year, organizing Rice Bowl giving for your parish or community is easier than ever. You can set up a fundraising page and tailor make it for your community. Click here to get your page set up in time for Lent!
Below are the themes for each week of Lent 2021:
Week 1 – A Journey to Three Countries
Week 2 – Madagascar
Week 3 – El Salvador
Week 4 – Timor-Leste
Week 5 – The Fruit of Our Lenten Sacrifice
We invite you to visit https://www.crsricebowl.org/resources to view all the resources available to help you deepen your engagement with the Rice Bowl program this Lent. Do not forget to peruse the rest of the Rice Bowl page to watch weekly Stories of Hope and download meatless Lenten recipes.
