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.
We would like to encourage parishes and schools to make use of the online community giving platform to allow you to fundraise within your community without needing to gather anyone to distribute Rice Bowls or to conduct a count at the end of Lent. With this platform, you can customize your own parish or school page and allow your ministries, clubs and families form teams to track their Lenten almsgiving.
As always, the CRS Rice Bowl website contains digital resources to help guide your community through the Lenten season. Digital lesson guides for all grade levels, videos, prayer services and more are all available in English and Spanish. Visit http://www.crsricebowl.org or http://www.crsplatodearroz.org to see the collection of 2022 resources.
